Con­cerns are growing over a young wo­man who friends say has gone miss­ing in Dubai.

Kirsty McLaugh­lin, from Scot­land, was last seen by friends more than 24 hours ago. A Face­book page, Please Help Find Kirsty McLaugh­lin, has been set up for peo­ple to share in­for­ma­tion re­gard­ing her pos­si­ble where­abouts.

In a se­ries of pub­lic posts ap­peal­ing for in­for­ma­tion, friends spoke about how she drives a dis­tinc­tive white Volk­swa­gen Beetle and plays rugby for Dubai Wasps.

“Her fam­ily and friends are growing more and more con­cerned for her safety and well­be­ing,” read the Face­book page that has been set up to help find her.

Her part­ner Mitch Joseph Wall, who is cur­rently in Texas, posted: “She doesn’t have her phone with her, was last seen Sun­day leav­ing ex­act same build­ing the pic­ture shows in said car.” Claire McMillen, a friend of McLaugh­lin’s, said: “The po­lice here are now ac­tively search­ing for her and they are tak­ing her case very se­ri­ously.” Another friend, Kristofer McNab, said her last Sa­lik read­ing was at 3pm on Sun­day.

Dubai Wasps were among those to ap­peal about Kirsty’s where­abouts by tweet­ing for peo­ple to come for­ward with in­for­ma­tion.

Dubai Po­lice were un­able to pro­vide any in­for­ma­tion re­gard­ing the in­ves­ti­ga­tion into Kirsty’s where­abouts at time of go­ing to press.

‘The po­lice are ac­tively search­ing for her and are tak­ing it se­ri­ously.’ – A friend of Kirsty’s on Face­book
