Villagers call for snatched girl's return
Villagers have sent out a powerful message for Sasha's return
A village in Easter Ross has sent out a distress call for the return of a nine-year-old girl snatched by her father in France.
Villagers have festoooned Portmahomack with yellow ribbons in support of Sasha Cameron's mother who is desperate for news of her daughter from whom she last heard a month ago.
Fiona Cameron won custody of her three children in 1997 after a long, bitter and public court battle both here and in France where she and her former husband had been living.
The pair have now disappeared and say they have taken Sasha for good.
Fiona Cameron led calls on Monday for help from the public for her daughter's return.
"Somebody may have been on holiday with them, travelled on a plane with them or have some idea of where they went. That is foremost in our actions today," she said.
The concerns of the locals were voiced by the Rev John Macleod who told BBC Scotland: "I know what it is like when one of my nine children is away on holiday, out of the family.
"What can it possibly feel like to have one of your three children missing? You don't know when or even if you are going to see them again."
Robert Cameron has an Australian passport and may have taken Sasha there. Until she is located, villagers say they will continue their efforts to trace her.
