Police divers have been searching the River Clyde in central Glasgow in the bid to trace missing deaf mum-of-four Kirsty Aitchison.

Kirsty (30), from the city’s Robroyston area, left Campus bar in Sauchiehall Street, at 3am on Sunday.

CCTV footage later showed the mother-of-four “walking quickly and with purpose” at the Broomielaw, by the River Clyde, at 3.16am.

Police divers could be seen searching the river around 11am on Wednesday.

CCTV footage showed Kirsty making her way down from Sauchiehall Street to Argyle Street and on to James Watt Street before walking down to the Broomielaw, where she was last seen on camera.

The footage confirms she was wearing the same clothing as in the photograph released to the media, which was taken on Saturday evening.

Kirsty is described as white, a British Sign Language user, about 5ft tall, slim build and long dark-coloured hair.

She was wearing a black top, cream skirt and in the CCTV images she is seen holding her high-heeled black sandals and walking barefoot.

It is believed she may have been walking to a casino on the Broomielaw to meet friends.

Anyone who can help should call Shettleston police office on 101 or email kirstyenquiry@scotland.pnn.police.uk .
