A Scottish bride has started a desperate search to find her antique wedding dress.

Tess Newall wore the dress when she got married back in June last year and has said that losing the family heirloom has been "awful and distressing".

The dress was originally made and worn by her great-grandmother Dora Torin who was married in Edinburgh back in 1870.

Tess rediscovered the gown in great condition in her mother's attic and decided to wear it at her own wedding.

The dress is beloved by the family and so, the bride has launched an appeal on Facebook to everyone everywhere to watch out for her priceless gown.

In the appeal, Tess explains that the dress was taken to Kleen Dry Cleaners, thinking it would be in safe, before it "fell into crooked hands".

She went on to state that "the dress was taken to be sold" and could literally be anywhere.

The post has since been shared over 170,000 times and the search is still ongoing.

We hope the gown is recovered very soon!
