|Gordon,a long time friend who with his family have been coming to Carradale on Holiday for many years.
I'm Sarah's dad. Her mum, brothers and I would hope that everyone can share this as far and wide as possible to try and trace Sarah's movements on Friday please? If you think you may have any information, no matter how small or insignificant you think it may be, please contact Police Scotland by telephoning 101, or speaking to any police officer. Our lives have been torn apart by this in a way that you could never imagine. Many thanks. Gordon, Lynne, Andrew and Jack.

APPEAL FOR INFORMATION – GLASGOW/RENFREW
Police are appealing for information about two incidents, one in Glasgow and the other in Renfrew, that may be linked.
Around 1940 hours on Friday 11 March, police, including the Force’s helicopter, and emergency services responded to reports that a young woman was within the River Clyde close to the Broomielaw near the King George V Bridge, Glasgow.
Despite efforts by police and emergency services and including that of two men who had been nearby and who had jumped in to the water to help the woman, she was not traced.
Later in the evening, around 2340 hours, 18 year old Sarah Goldie, from Renfrew, was reported missing by her family. She had left her home around 1100 hours on Friday morning to go to Renfrew Town Centre and then into Glasgow City Centre. Her bag was found near to the area where the young woman entered the Clyde was last seen.
Sarah is described as white, 5 ft 6 in height, of medium build, with brown eyes and sandy/strawberry blond straight hair. She was wearing a khaki green Parka type jacket with a fur hood. She was carrying a cherry red coloured handbag.
Chief Inspector Mark Sutherland from Glasgow City Centre Police Office, said today:
“Sarah left home about 1100 on Friday morning. We now know that later in the evening, she took a taxi from Glasgow to Renfrew and was dropped off in the Torridon Drive area.
“About an hour and forty minutes later, at 1940 hours, police received a call about a young woman in the River Clyde and that’s also when Sarah’s bag was found.
“Officers have been checking CCTV but an image of the woman who entered the water has not been captured, so at this time, we cannot confirm that it was Sarah.
“A number of people came to help when the woman fell in, and we have spoken to most of them, however, we are keen to speak to the driver of a white 4x4 vehicle, possibly a Range Rover ‘Evoque’, who stopped at the time and also to the woman who handed in Sarah’s bag.
“As we say, at this time we cannot link the two definitively, however, we are keen to find out about Sarah’s movements between the 1800 hours and 1940 hours on Friday evening.
“If you were in the area and saw the young woman near to or enter the River Clyde, or if you have any information as to Sarah’s whereabouts, then please contact police via 101.”
