UPDATE: It is with a heavy heart that the Scotland Missing Report shares that according to the Greater Glasgow Police division the body of Janet McQueen was discovered.
Around 1230 hours on Sunday 26 February 2017, a woman’s body was recovered by officers from the White Cart Water at Pollok Country Park, Glasgow. The deceased has now been formally identified as Janet McQueen. Her relatives are aware.
There would appear to be no suspicious circumstances surrounding her death and a report will be submitted to the Procurator Fiscal.
Our thoughts are with her family and loved ones at this time.
ORIGINAL ARTICLE: GLASGOW — The Cathcart Police is asking for the public’s assistance in locating missing 58 year old Janet McQueen out of the Govanhill, Glasgow, Scotland area.
She was last seen by her neighbour leaving her home in Langside Road, Govanhill, Glasgow, around 2100 hours on Tuesday 18 October 2016.
Despite extensive enquiries by police, including widespread door to door enquiries, specialist search teams being utilised in rear courtyards around Janet’s home and within Queens Park, as well as numerous appeals, a family press conference and a stop and interview, there hasn’t been any trace of Janet since the Tuesday night.
Inspector Alex Hutton, Gorbals Police Station, said:
“This is a horrible time for the family; they just don’t know where Janet is or what, if anything, has happened to her. The family kept in touch with each other and for Janet to be out of contact for so long is concerning and very, very distressing for them.
“Janet left her flat around 9pm on the Tuesday night and for some reason she left behind her wee dog Palsy, her phone and money – why she did that is still to be established.
“We know that earlier in the day she appeared somewhat distressed whilst travelling on a bus, so much so that the driver called police and she was taken home to family, however, for whatever reason, she headed out around 9pm.
“While there is nothing at this time to indicate any suspicious circumstances or that anything untoward has happened to Janet, it is very unusual for someone to just disappear without any trace.
“Officers have trawled through hours and hours of CCTV looking her, and we’ve been liaising with her bank in case there has been any activity on her account but so far nothing.
“She has not been seen by any of her family, friends or neighbours – all very odd and all very concerning.
“Janet’s family are desperate for her to come home. We are doing everything we can to find her and would again appeal to anyone who has any information.
She was wearing glasses, a black anorak and dark coloured trousers when she was last seen.
Janet is described as:
• Gender: Female.
• Eyes: Glasses.
• Hair: Short, Black.
• Height: 5 Ft.
• Weight: Slim Build.
