Police in the UK have launched an appeal to find Linzi Davis and her eight-year-old son River Bain, who were last seen on Friday near a train station in the Scottish Highlands.

The mother and son from Auldearn, a village situated close to Nairn train station where the pair were last spotted, have not been in contact with family or friends and police say they are now “anxious” to find them,

“Officers would appeal directly to Ms Davis to make contact by phoning 101 or via any police officer or police station.”

Linzi Davis (36) is described as being 5ft 2in, of medium build and has dark brown hair worn in a side parting. Ms. Davis has distinctive tattoos on the top of her right arm and along her collar bone. Linzi’s son River Bain (8) is described as slim with short dark hair. It is not known what they were wearing when the they were last seen.

Officers say the mother and son may have travelled to Edinburgh using public transport but they are also looking at links the pair have in Nairn, Inverness and Forres.
