Police Scotland said: “Khasha’s family is extremely concerned for her and are hoping the posters remind people she’s still missing and that we are still looking for information which could help us find her.”

When she was reported missing, Inspector Keith Forrester said: “We are extremely concerned for Khasha. She normally maintains contact with her family and it is unusual for her to not be in touch for this length of time.”

Appealing to anyone who has information, he added: “Please don’t think what you know is irrelevant, let us decide its significance, your information could be vital in helping us trace Khasha.”

If anyone has seen Khasha or has any information on where she may have gone, you can call 101, quoting reference 3915 of 5 January.
