Police have stopped drivers and pedestrians in an appeal for information over a teenager missing for a week in the Highlands.

Jade McGrath, 19, was last seen in the Leachkin area of Inverness on Wednesday November 28.

Search dogs and specialist officers have been involved in the search for her but so far no trace has been found.

Police returned to Leachkin Road on Wednesday to interview people who regularly use the area and may have seen Jade last week.

“Unfortunately the last confirmed sighting we have of Jade remains a week ago in the Leachkin Road area.

“Extensive efforts remain ongoing to establish her movements, including house to house enquiries and speaking to motorists in the area at the same time of day Jade was last seen.

“We would continue to ask local residents to be aware and let us know if you believe you have seen Jade since Wednesday, November 28 or any time since.”

The teenager is around 5ft 1in with a slim build, bleached blonde hair and blue eyes.

When last seen she was wearing a khaki parka, black leggings and black and white Nike trainers.

Her family, from Aviemore, said earlier this week they are “desperate for answers”.

A statement released through Police Scotland said: “There has been a massive amount of support from friends and family, as well as people we have never met, and that is what is keeping us going.

“Anyone who was in the Leachkin area last Wednesday afternoon from around 1.45pm, please think back and if you think you might have seen anything please call the police.

“She has distinctive Alice in Wonderland tattoos on one of her forearms. On the same arm she has diamond and club symbols from a pack of cards on her fingers, as well as a small diamond tattoo on her hand.

“She had no phone or money with her and she would most likely have been in a distressed state if you saw her.

“We are grateful to everyone who has helped so far and are just desperate for news.

“If Jade is reading this, we want you to know that we love you very much and we just want you home safe.”
