Police have stepped up the hunt for a missing woman amid increasing concern for the mother of two, who disappeared a week ago.
Heather McKay, 51, has not been seen since last Friday morning after she spent the night at a friend's home in Dechmont, West Lothian.
Her friend left for work at 7.30am but by the time another friend called round an hour later, there was no sign of her.
Officers from Lothian and Borders Police have been carrying out patrols in the area one week on in a bid to jog the memories of regular commuters and parents who drop their children off at the school who may have spotted Ms McKay.
Police have also been scanning CCTV footage and distributing leaflets as part of the large-scale inquiry. A number of unconfirmed sightings are being followed up.
Police inspector Neill Whiteside said: "A week has now passed since Heather McKay disappeared and we are growing more concerned for her welfare as each day passes.
"I hope that today's activity plays a vital part in providing lines of inquiry to help us in our efforts to trace Ms McKay. We have a number of resources involved in the search and we will continue to do all we can to trace her."
Ms McKay's daughter has said her mother's disappearance is out of character. Andrea Waddell and her brother Kevin said: "We have always been a really close family and we miss her so much. We just want to know that she is safe and well, and there are so many people out there who care about her and want her to come home."
Ms McKay is 5ft 7ins, of average build, with brown hair and hazel-green eyes. She has a small tattoo on her right shoulder.
Police believe she may be wearing a light blue Berghaus rain jacket, jeans and a pair of brown Hi-Tec walking boots. Anyone with information on her whereabouts is asked to contact police on 0131 311 3131.
