Police are appealing for information to help trace a Newport woman who has been reported missing.
Susan Reid, 56, was last in touch with her family on Tuesday but has not been seen or heard from since.
It is understood the crew of the Broughty Ferry lifeboat were asked to help with the search on Friday.
Police say her disappearance is out of character.
She is described as 5ft 7in, slim, with short blonde/greying hair.
Chief Inspector Adrian Annandale said: “We are growing increasingly concerned for Susan’s welfare the longer she remains missing, and we want anyone who has seen or heard from her, or who knows of her current whereabouts, to contact police.
“Similarly, we would appeal to Susan to contact us directly so that we confirm she is safe and well.”
Anyone with information can contact Police Scotland on 101.
