Date: Friday 21st December 2018

AN Eden father has appealed for the public’s help in finding his missing daughter.

Sophia Airey, aged 29, the daughter of Andy Airey, was reported missing from her home at Edina Street, Edinburgh. She was last seen in Corstorphine, a village near Edinburgh, at 2-30pm on Wednesday and is believed to have been in the South Queensferry area at about 7pm that day.

Sophia’s car, a blue Skoda Fabia, registration SM65 LLR, was found at Hawes Pier car park and has been recovered by police.

Sophia is described as being 5ft 7in tall, of medium build and has jaw length light brown/blonde hair.

She is thought to be wearing light blue skinny jeans, a multi-coloured turtleneck Nike running top and black suede boots.

Mr Airey shared appeals on Twitter on Thursday. He said: “Thanks to everyone who has helped share the news about Sophie’s disappearance. The police are actively searching for her but we’ve heard nothing new.”

Inspector Grant McCulloch, from Leith police station, said: “We believe that Sophia drove the car from Lady Nairne Loan sometime in the afternoon to South Queensferry.

“I am keen to speak to anyone who may have seen her or her vehicle in the South Queensferry area after this.”

Anyone with information is urged to contact police on 101.
