Concern was raised at 2.30am this morning (Wednesday December 6) after the woman, wearing pyjamas, was seen walking past Market Square in the Easter Ross town, heading in the direction of Morrisons supermarket.

A spokesperson for Police Scotland said: "At about 2.30am this morning, we received a report in Alness of an elderly lady in her pyjamas walking past Market Square in the direction towards Morrisons.

"Despite extensive searches - including utilising a police dog - we have been unable to trace the lady. We are concerned for her welfare as she was not dressed appropriately for the sub-zero weather conditions overnight.

"If this may have been you or someone you know, please get in touch on 101 quoting incident ref 0237 of 06/12/2023. Similarly, if you were in the area around this time and may have seen her, please also get in touch."
