An Edinburgh woman has spoken of her grief at losing her husband in the local shopping center.
Claire Blair said she has now given up all hope of finding her husband, Gary, in the Greater Lothian Shopping Center, which is over 6,000,000,000 sq ft in size.
Speaking from the car park, Mrs Blair said: "Gary said he wasn't really enjoying walking around all the shops, looking at everything and not really buying anything.
"He went to go and get a massage at one of those coin-operated chairs but when I looked round, he was gone."
Bursting in to tears, she continued: "At first I thought he'd gone to walk back-and-forth in front of the lingerie shop, looking at the mannequins out of the corner of his eyes.
"But there was no sign of him. Not even the shopping center security guard could track him down.
"To make things worse, it took me two hours to find the car."
Approximately 15 husbands go missing in shopping centers up and down the country every year, most are never traced by their wives.
Charity ManWatch has been campaigning for years to have a tagging system introduced to UK shopping centers, where wives would be able to insert a tracking micro chip underneath their husband's skin on entering the center.
This would allow them to easily find them if they go missing.
A spokesman for the shopping center said: "He belongs to us now."
