The search for Lynn McPaul continues.
The search for Lynn McPaul continues.

A plea has been issued asking Dundee residents to check their outbuildings as a search for a missing Dundee woman  continues.

On Thursday – the fourth day of the search – officers continued door-to-door inquiries following the disappearance of West End woman, Lynn McPaul.

Police on Magdalen Yard Road this morning.

The 45-year-old has not been seen since 11.40pm on Sunday at her home on Perth Road, close to Strawberry Bank.

Several police units were part of a search operation on Thursday morning, as concern for Lynn’s welfare grows.

Police were seen entering blocks of flats on Magdalen Yard Road whilst other officers were using large search sticks on Windsor Street.

Residents said officers had been asking for dashcam and doorbell camera footage during their inquiries as the search area widened.

On Wednesday night officers were checking outbuildings and gardens in Strawberry Bank.

‘Completely out of character’

Speaking to The Courier, Inspector Keith Anderson of Downfield Police Station said: “We are continuing with extensive searches and police inquiries in order to trace Lynn McPaul.

“It is completely out of character for her to be out of touch with her family for this length of time.

“We are growing increasingly concerned for her welfare the longer she remains missing.

“Search activity is continuing around the area today and we will have a number of specialist police resources dedicated to helping find her.”

Magdalen Yard Road.

Inspector Anderson encouraged West End residents to search their outbuildings.

“I would urge anyone who lives around Strawberry Bank, Richmond Terrace and Magdalen Green or the surrounding area who may have a shed or outbuilding where someone could seek shelter to check this and report anything of note to us,” he said.

“Lynn’s family are extremely concerned for her and we are providing them with support and keeping them fully informed of our search activity.

“Alongside the search activity, we are continuing with conventional police enquiries to try and establish Lynn’s movements since she was last seen on Sunday.

“I would please ask anyone with information which has not yet been passed to police to get in touch urgently.”

Officers on Windsor Street.

He added: “Even if you feel your information may not be of note, it may help us piece together Lynn’s movements.

“I would also reiterate our appeal to anyone who lives around the Strawberry Bank, Richmond Terrace and Magdalen Green area who may have dashcam, private CCTV or doorbell camera footage to review this and pass on anything of note to us.

“Anyone with information is asked to call Police Scotland via 101, quoting reference number 0157 of January 24, 2022.”
