Janet McQueen's family

The family of a woman who has been missing from her Glasgow home for four weeks have spoken to detectives about their efforts to trace her.

Janet McQueen, 58, was last seen leaving her home on Langside Road, Govanhill at about 10pm on Tuesday, October 18.

She is described as 5ft, slim and with short black hair. She was wearing glasses, a black anorak and dark-coloured trousers.

Police Scotland have conducted door-to-door enquires and a dedicated team of officers is working on the investigation to trace her.

Inspector Alex Hutton, of Cathcart police station, said: ''Janet has now been missing for four weeks and her family and friends are extremely worried abut her.

''It is totally out of character for her to be out of touch for this length of time and there are real concerns for her wellbeing.

''This must be a very distressing time for them and we wanted to take this opportunity to invite her family into the incident room today to reassure them that we are doing everything we can to find her.''

Ms McQueen did not take her dog and left home without any money or her mobile phone.

Her sister has said the family are ''worried sick'' about her and urged her to get in touch.

Police have already appealed to the public for potential sightings of her and re-appealed to the public to come forward with information.

Mr Hutton said: ''I would continue to appeal to members of the public to come forward with any information they may have regarding Janet 's whereabouts. No matter how insignificant you think it may be, please let us know, so that officers can make that judgement.

Anyone with information is asked to contact officers at Cathcart police station.
