Karen Buckley: Police Search Glasgow Park

Dozens of police officers and a helicopter have been scouring a Glasgow park for clues on the disappearance of missing student Karen Buckley.

The entrance to Dawsholm Park was cordoned off after the 24-year-old’s handbag was found there.
Ms Buckley went missing in the early hours of Sunday after leaving the house of a man she met on a night out.
The man, who is not currently a suspect, told officers she had left at 4am but the Irish student has not been seen since.
It is believed she was planning to walk back to her flat in Hill Street.
Her parents, who have flown from Ireland to help with the search, said it was typical for her not to use taxis.
Ms Buckley spent Saturday night with friends at Glasgow’s Sanctuary nightclub on Dumbarton Road.
She told them at around 1am she was going to the toilet, but failed to return and left her jacket behind.
CCTV spotted her leaving the club with the man, whose identity has not yet been revealed.
Detective Superintendent Jim Kerr said: "We've traced the man she was with in Dorchester Avenue. He believes he was intimate with her at his flat consensually in the early hours of Sunday.
"From what we can see, she does not appear to be under duress, there's no signs of a struggle or reluctance on her part to leave the club.
"However, that does not mean that something untoward has happened to her at a later stage."
The parents of Ms Buckley, who studies occupational therapy and is originally from Cork, said they were "desperate" for the public’s help.
"We just want Karen home safely, we are desperate. She is our only daughter, we love her dearly," said her mother, Marian.
"If anybody has any information please come forward, we would dearly appreciate it."
Ms Buckley's father, John, said: "If anybody is holding Karen, if anybody knows anything of her, please return her. Please let's have her back. We love her to bits."
Det Supt Kerr said Ms Buckley was widely travelled and was "aware of how to take care of herself".
Police also want to find out more about a grey car seen on the roads between Milngavie and Drymen, north of Glasgow, between 11am and 3pm on Monday.
Det Supt Kerr said: "The activity of this grey car on the Monday is something that we're a wee bit concerned about.
"This car has been seen at various locations on these roads and I want to know why."
Ms Buckley is between 5ft and 5ft 2in with brown eyes and dark hair which has long black curly extensions in it.
She was last seen wearing a black jumpsuit, red high-heeled shoes and carrying a black handbag.
