Greenock police continue to appeal for information on a vulnerable woman who has been missing from her home since Friday, October 28, 2016.

Despite a number of previous appeals there have been no confirmed sightings of Margaret Fleming, who resides in Inverkip.

On Thursday, November 24, police will be stopping and speaking to motorists and pedestrians in the area of Inverkip, Wemyss Bay, and Port Bannatyne, where it is believed Margaret liked to visit.

When last seen she was wearing a green-coloured tartan fleece or jumper, dark coloured jeans or trousers, wearing ‘Karrimor’ type boots which were dark in colour. She also had a satchel-type handbag.

Margaret is believed to have some learning difficulties.

A number of specialist resources from Police Scotland have been utilised in the search for Margaret including mounted branch, underwater unit and dog branch.

Chief Inspector Elliot Brown, Area Commander for Greenock, said: “Today we’re out speaking to local people in the area to help jog their memories and to try to glean more information which might assist with our enquiries.

“We also have some officers who are travelling over to Port Bannatyne on the ferry from Wemyss Bay, as we understand Margaret liked to visit there, to see if anyone over there may have seen her recently.

“We’re continuing significant enquiries into the disappearance of Margaret, and unfortunately despite our previous appeals, the sightings we’ve received from members of the public have drawn a blank. I would like to thank the local communities of Inverkip and beyond for their help so far, we do appreciate it.

“As we continue to look into Margaret’s life, some of which she kept private, we are keen to speak to anyone who may have had any friendship or relationship with her over the years.

“I would ask anyone with any information, no matter how irrelevant it might seem, to contact police at Greenock via 101.”
