Lydia Burnet description

She is described as being white, 5ft3 and of medium build with fair hair.

She was last seen wearing a brown faun colored jumper, a knitted waistcoat with a Fair Isle multi-colored pattern on the front and green on the back, khaki colored cord trousers and blue shoes.

Lydia might have not gone far from the neighborhood, hence police are asking anyone who may have seen Lydia to get in touch and also to check any sheds or outbuildings.

“Lydia is physically fit and often goes for short walks but it is out of character for her to be away for this length of time, and we are growing increasingly concerned about her.

“I am appealing to anyone who was in the Otter Ferry area earlier, and may have seen Lydia walking, to please get in touch.” Said Inspector Allan Kirk
