Police are becoming “increasingly concerned” over the welfare of a mum-of-two who was last seen a week ago.

The two children of Karen Stevenson, 42, are “extremely upset” and want their mum to come home after she disappeared last Saturday, according to police.

Officers say Karen left the family home in Lairds Hill, Seafar, Cumbernauld in South Lanarkshire some time after midnight on February 19.

She walked towards the town center and was recorded on CCTV in a shopping center elevator at around 2.44am, the Daily Record reports.

Just 10 minutes later she was picked up outside Muirfield Community Centre.

No one has heard from or seen her since, police say, adding that they are becoming “increasingly concerned” for her welfare.

A total of 53 cars and 20 pedestrians were stopped in and around Fleming Road between 1am and 4am on Saturday in the hope of jogging people’s memories over Karen’s movements.

Sergeant Greig McKail said: “Karen’s family, including her two children, are extremely upset by her disappearance and just want to know she is safe and well and want her home as soon as possible.

“Extensive searches and inquiries have been carried out throughout the local area in an effort to trace her.
