Missing Gran's Body Found In Glasgow
26 January 2015, 16:53
A grandmother who went missing a week ago has been found dead in Glasgow.
Wilhelmina Rooney's body was discovered in a park in the east end yesterday.
Her death is not being treated as suspicious.
Last week the family of 71-year-old, who was known as Anne, had made a public appeal for her to come home.
Anne was last seen by her husband at their home in East Kilbride, South Lanarkshire, last Monday.
A large-scale search was launched, involving police helicopters and search dogs.
Officers said at the time of the appeal that her bus pass appeared to have been used on Glasgow buses.
Mrs Rooney's husband Edward, son Paul and daughters Elaine Melrose and Alison Parker appealed for information on her whereabouts at East Kilbride Police station on Friday.
Mrs Parker read a family statement and started by saying: "Hi mum; dad, Paul, Elaine, Arthur and me are all here today to tell you how much we love you and how much we miss you.
"Nothing's the same without you, mum. Your grandchildren, wee Holly, Lauren and Lucy, all miss their gran too. They can't wait to give you hugs and big kisses, they all love you so much.
"Please mum, please come home or just even let us know that you're safe. We promise that there won't be loads of questions when you come back. You're not in any trouble, we just want you back home with us.
"We can fix anything because the Rooneys stick together.''
