Police have stepped up their efforts to trace a woman who disappeared from her home in Glasgow almost eight weeks ago.
Lynda Zejaf, 27, who is also known as Lynda Spence or Lynda Palmer, was last seen by her parents after leaving their flat in the Partick area on 13 April.
The next day her mother received a text saying she had travelled to London but has had no further contact.
The case is now being handled by Strathclyde Police's major investigations team.
Ms Zejaf lives in Castlebank Street in the city but went missing after visiting her parent's flat.
Police said she had not planned a trip to London. Her car was seen in Ayrshire a week after she disappeared.
She is described as 5ft 8ins (1.73m) tall, of heavy build, with brown hair which she usually wears in a ponytail, brown eyes and a tanned complexion. She has a scar under her eye and speaks with a Glasgow accent.
It is not known what she was wearing at the time of her disappearance but she is in the habit of wearing business style dress.
The 27-year-old is known to frequent the Merchant City and West End areas of Glasgow as well as Ayrshire .
Det Supt Alan Buchanan said: "Despite our extensive inquiries we have yet to obtain any information on Lynda's whereabouts.
"Her disappearance is totally out of character and we are now extremely concerned for her safety and well-being and cannot rule out that she has come to some harm.
"Lynda has car registration number DV56 FKW which we have yet to trace but inquiries have revealed that this vehicle was seen in the Ayrshire area on Wednesday 20 April.
He added: "I appeal to anyone who has seen this car from 14 April onwards to get in touch as a matter of urgency."
