Police Scotland**Update – We’ve been told that Mrs Allan has been found safe and sound**

Police in East Lothian are appealing for information to help trace an elderly woman who has been reported missing by her family from the Port Seaton area.

Helen Allan (sometimes known as Aileen) who is 79 years old, was last seen near to her home at the Promenade, Port Seaton at 6am this morning and is believed to have got on a Lothian Region bus, possibly the number 26.

While Helen is mobile, she suffers from dementia and so may appear confused and disorientated.

She is described as white, 5ft 2in to 5ft 3in tall, slim build, greying short hair, gold-rimmed rectangular shaped glasses and carrying a black handbag with strap and pockets.

She is possibly wearing a two piece suit with a buttoned, collarless purple top, pleated skirt, and black shoes.

Inspector Andrew Hill said:

We are asking the public for their assistance in helping us trace Helen so we can establish that she is safe and well, and return her to the care of her family. Anyone with information is urged to contact Police Scotland on 101.

L&B Police LogoLothian and Borders Police are appealing for information after three high value vehicles were stolen following housebreakings in East Lothian this week.

On Monday (September 17), a red Merecedes and a black Audi were stolen from a property in Carberry Road, Musselburgh about 2.15pm. A group of four men were seen leaving the house before driving away in the cars – the keys had been stolen from the house.

One of the men is described as being white, around 5ft 8ins tall, in his early 20s with short brown hair, wearing a dark jacket and jeans. There are no other descriptions available.

In another incident, a BMW was stolen from a house that had been broken into in Laburnum Avenue in Port Seton at about 8.10pm last night (September 19) again the car keys had been taken from the house. There is no description of any suspects available.

Officers are urging home owners to stay vigilant and ensure their properties are properly secured, and car keys are not left lying out, or in obvious easily accessible storage cupboards or drawers in particular near front or back doors.

Detective Inspector Keith McKay said;

We are appealing for anyone who may have any information about either of these incidents to contact us.

At the moment we are keeping an open mind regarding our inquiries, but it would appear these housebreakings are linked at this stage.

Furthermore, I would encourage anyone seeking home security advice to contact police directly on 0131 311 3131, or to consult the force website.
