Hazel North, 19, was last seen by her sister on March 4 when she said she was travelling from her home in the Cairneyhill area of Dunfermline to meet a friend in Kilmarnock.

A force spokeswoman said "police activity" is continuing in the area today with inquiries continuing in Kilmarnock and Dunfermline.

Ms North is 5ft 8in tall, with a slim build, a fair complexion and shoulder-length blonde hair.

Police are appealing for anyone with information or who may have seen Ms North since March 4 to contact them on 101.
