Ellen went missing from the New Craigs Hospital in Inverness, Scotland, on the morning of Saturday 15 May 2004.

She went for a walk at 10am and about half an hour later was sighted on nearby Leachkin Road. However, despite extensive searches, Ellen has not been seen since. There is great concern for Ellen, who is from Muir of Ord in Rosshire, as she had been unwell at the time of her disappearance. Her family are desperate to know what happened to Ellen and urge anyone with news to get in touch.

Ellen is 5ft 2in tall, of slim build with light brown hair cut in a 'bob' style and blue eyes. She is described as very quiet and walks with her hands clasped in front of her.
