“Growing concern” for Fife teen missing since Hogmanay

Carmen Buchan

Police in Fife are appealing for information to help trace a teenage girl reported missing in Cowdenbeath.

Carmen Buchan was out with friends on Hogmanay and was due to return to her home to Wardlaw Street for 11pm.

However, the 15-year-old has not yet come back and concern is now growing for her welfare.

It is believed Carmen may have travelled to Edinburgh and inquiries are continuing both in Fife and the capital to try and locate her.

She is described as white, 5ft 10ins tall with a very slim build, long blonde hair and she was wearing a white crop top underneath a see-through mesh top with embroidered flowers, a black bomber jacket, high-waisted ripped skinny jeans and white and grey Adidas Gazelle trainers.

Inspector Gavin Cameron, from Cowdenbeath Police Station, said: “Carmen has not been seen since Hogmanay, whilst we suspect she may be with friends concern is growing and we are keen to establish her whereabouts as soon as possible so we can confirm she is safe.

“Members of the public in Fife or Edinburgh who believe they may have seen Carmen since Hogmanay, or know where she can be found, should contact police immediately.

“I would also ask Carmen to return home or get in touch if she sees this appeal.”

Those with information can contact Cowdenbeath Police Station via 101 and quote incident number 245 of the January 1.
