    Emma's clothing and the belongings she had with her on the night she went missing have never been found.

    The new search aims to recover any of those items, which also bring clear forensic opportunities that could assist the inquiry.

    Police said they were keen to speak to anyone who uses this area, perhaps walkers, joggers, dog walkers or courting couples.

    Detective Superintendent David McLaren said: 'Finding the person or people responsible for Emma's murder is a priority for us.

    'I'm particularly keen to hear from anyone who has been involved in prostitution and who may have been taken to the woods near Roberton.

    'It's a remote location and would take around 40 minutes to travel there from Glasgow city centre on the M74.

    'Even if you can't be sure if it's the same location you were taken to, please get in touch if someone has taken you out with the city centre.

    Murder victim Emma Caldwell
    Margaret Caldwell spoke on the 12th anniversary of the day the 27-year-old vanished, sparking one of Scotland's biggest police hunts.

    Now, detectives have revealed new information about her disappearance which indicates the victim - who had turned to prostitution - may have got into a black car in Glasgow city centre just hours before being strangled to death.
    Four Turkish men were arrested in 2007 over her death but the case collapsed. One suspect was later convicted of rape and sexual assaults involving prostitutes.

    The men were linked to the victim from blood traces found on bedding at a Turkish cafe, amid claims from other vice girls of being raped there.

    The last call received by her mobile came from a Turkish man in Glasgow's East End - at 11.20pm on April 4, 2005 - and police experts showed that the last "ping" from her phone was close to the cafe.
    Mrs Caldwell made her appeal as specialist officers launched a fresh search of the site where her daughter's body was found bound, with the kind of electrical cable used by musicians, in May 2005.

    The search is focusing on two specific areas - including a pond - in a remote, woodland location west of Newton, near Biggar in Lanarkshire.

    Detectives believe other Glasgow prostitutes were taken to the isolated spot - around five miles from the M74, including more than a mile of single-track roads - and are appealing for them to come forward.

    Previously, the last recorded sighting of Emma was on Butterbiggins Road in the south-side of Glasgow. Detectives have established that Emma may have been seen getting into a black saloon style vehicle/car, similar to a BMW and that it may have originated from the Dumfries area.
    If the killer is reading or watching he should know there will never be a time limit on justice for Emma Caldwell. This appeal today is not only for Emma, but also to the women who will have been hurt by this man or the friends or family who were too scared to speak out 12 years ago. "If you know anything, saw anything or can help in any way then please have the courage to come forward and speak to the police in total confidence.”
    Anyone with any information is asked to contact Police Scotland on 101 or alternatively, please call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 where information can be given anonymously.
