Police divers search for missing Dumfries woman

Lynn Tyeson

[O]fficers in Dumfries are continuing the search for missing 48-year-old Lynn Tyeson who went missing in the town in the early hours of Sunday 29 July 2018.

Major searches have already taken place along the River Nith and downstream towards the Solway Estuary town since Lynn was reported missing. Today, divers from Police Scotland’s Marine Unit are carrying our searches in a number of areas in the river, in the vicinity of the Caul and Devorgilla Bridge.

Lynn was out with friends on Saturday night, and was last seen around 3am on Sunday 29 July 2018, in the Whitesands area. She is described as white, has a slim build and blonde shoulder length hair.  She was wearing a black and white striped top, black skinny trousers, and black sandals.

Inspector Alan McGowan, who is currently managing the search said: “We are now appealing to those who live along the sides of the River Nith to take a few minutes out to have a look in sheds and outbuildings on their property just in case Lynn has taken shelter there.  We have a large number of officers searching along the sides of the river at this time and will be checking gardens and other areas in this search.

“We are still keen to hear from anyone who may have spoken to Lynn in Dumfries in the early hours of Sunday morning, and again would like to hear from a dog walker who had two small dogs and who was in the area of the Mill Green around this time.

“Anyone with any information as to her whereabouts is asked to contact us via 101, quoting incident number 0868 of 29/7.”
