A man has been arrested over the disappearance of a woman who has been missing for 11 days.

Emma Faulds, 39, was last seen on the morning of 28 April in Monkton, South Ayrshire.

Her “utterly distraught” family reported her missing last week, police said.

“She comes from a loving and close-knit family and is [ordinarily] constantly in touch with them," said detective chief inspector Martin Fergus, who is leading the inquiry.

“She also cares for her dog and she would never just leave him without ensuring he is being cared for.”

Detectives said they had made an arrest on Wednesday.

”A 39-year-old man has been arrested in connection with her disappearance and inquiries are continuing," Police Scotland said in a statement.

Detectives were making inquiries in the Kilmarnock area and reviewing CCTV.

Ms Faulds’ car, a light blue BMW 1 Series M Sport, was seized by police for a full forensic examination.
