Detectives investigating the death of Emma Faulds are continuing to work with specialist search advisors and forensic officers as they try to find her.
Officers are still interested in tracing the movements of two vehicles on the A714 Girvan to Newton Stewart. One vehicle, a black Mercedes car, was seen on Monday 29 April and a black Jaguar car was sighted on Tuesday 30 April 2019.
A man has been charged with Ms Faulds’ murder.
Ross Willox, 39, made no plea at Ayr Sheriff Court and was remanded in custody.
Ms Faulds, who was 39 and from Kilmarnock, was last seen in Monkton in Ayrshire on Sunday 28 April.
Detectives believe the movements of these cars are central to the investigation and are appealing for the public’s help in trying to find out more about them. This is a large region and more detailed information is required so officers can carry out a more systematic search.
The force helicopter is also being utilised for aerial reconnaissance which will be used to assist in mapping the area.
A link has been set up which means members of the public can log on and import footage from their mobile phone or dash cam. This footage is then linked to the inquiry team, based in the incident room, who can download it to analyse and review and take the appropriate action. Members of the public need only log onto: https://mipp.police.uk and navigate to the Emma Faulds Inquiry.
Detective Chief Inspector Martin Fergus, who is leading this inquiry, said: “What Emma’s family is going through is unimaginable and our priority is to find her. I am thankful to members of the public who have been in touch and have provided us with valuable information which has led us to explore this area.
“I believe the A714 route is key to helping us find Emma and I am appealing again to those who use this route regularly, please take time to think back and consider if you saw a Mercedes or Jaguar car on this road or parked up somewhere, or even off road. If you have dash cam footage, please take the time to go through and check it. You may not realise it but you could have captured footage of the vehicles in these locations which could provide us with vital information and assist us in finding Emma.”
