12-01-10 Missing Person
Have you seen this woman.
Police are appealing for information about a woman who has been missing from the Tarbert area of Argyll since Wednesday 6 January 2010.
Niloofar Polvandeh (51), from Germany, checked into the Stonefield Castle Hotel, Tarbert, Argyll, on the Wednesday and was last seen retiring to her room around 2100 hrs that night.
Ms Polvandeh, who is believed to originally be from the Middle East, is described as having a sallow complexion, around 5ft 4 in height, of slim build, with shoulder length dark brown hair. It is believed she was wearing a purple skirt and knee length boots when last seen by staff at the hotel.
An extensive search of the area has been carried out but so far there have been no further sightings of Ms Polvandeh and police are becoming increasingly concerned about her safety and well being.
Appeal for information
Chief Inspector Judy Wilson, Lochgilphead Police Office, is appealing for information. She said:
“We have involved the mountain rescue, the coastguard, the Marine Policing Unit, the Force helicopter and our police dogs in the search for Ms Polvandeh, however, there is just no trace of her.
“We know she definitely did not check out of the hotel and has not been in contact with anyone from there or the area.
“She arrived in Glasgow on Monday and we believe she stayed in the city centre, possibly somewhere in Renfield Street, on the Monday and Tuesday night, before taking a West Coast Motors (City Link) bus to Tarbert on the Wednesday.
“I am keen to hear from anyone who spoke to or met her, maybe sat with her on the bus, in the days before she arrived in Tarbert or who may have any information about her whereabouts.
“Also, I would ask that, if she is able to, Niloofar contact police to let us know she is ok.”
Anyone with information can contact Lochgilphead Police Office on telephone number 01546 702200 or CRIMESTOPPERS on 0800 555 111, where calls can be treated in confidence.
Update.There has now been a report of a sighting in Southend, South Kintyre.
