A Police Scotland Tayside Division spokesperson said: “Although she was seen on the southbound platform at around 5 p.m., Lorraine did not board a train that day, and her activities following that time are still unknown.

“Assisted greatly by the response from the public to our appeals, police have already made extensive enquiries in the Montrose, Aberdeen and Peterhead areas, where she has spent much of her time.

“Along with British Transport Police and the Coastguard, Police Scotland search specialists have carried out detailed searches in the Montrose area.

“Posters and leaflets have also been distributed door to door throughout the community and we would urge and encourage people to come forward with any further information they might have that would assist officers with their enquiries.

“Anyone who has seen Lorraine or has any information as to where she is now should contact Police Scotland on 101 or speak to any officer.”

Lorraine is about five feet tall in height and is very slim build. At the time she was last seen her hair was very distinctive, her natural dark brown hair is dyed blonde and the colour is growing out. She was wearing a white jacket with a fur trimmed hood, blue skinny-leg jeans and white trainers. She was carrying a light coloured canvas hand-bag over her shoulder.

Last month, Police Scotland released as CCTV photograph of Lorraine in Subway in Montrose on the day she went missing.

Lorraine moved to her flat in Hill Street around a year ago having previously lived in the Aberdeen and Peterhead areas.
