The heartbroken brother of the Saltcoats woman who went missing before being found dead on Saturday, is asking for help to give her sons the life they deserve.

Natasha Harrison disappeared from the Cunningham Crescent area last Thursday afternoon, August 6.

People across the Three Towns, Arran and Irvine launched a mass search and helping put up posters as Police Scotland said they were ‘growing increasingly concerned for Natasha’s wellbeing’.

At the time a friend told the Herald: “It’s completely out of character for her she’s shy and quiet, wouldn’t usually do something like this. She [is] vulnerable to feeling really down.”

Ardrossan and Saltcoats Herald:

Natasha, who also goes by Tasha, grew up with her brother Sean Gebbie in Irvine and then Darvel, before she moved to the Three Towns to be by the sea.

At around 7.25pm on Saturday, August 8, Natasha’s body was found in a wooded area on New Street in Stevenston near Livingstone Parish Church.

A Police Scotland spokesperson said the death is not being treated as suspicious.

The 27-year-old, who would have celebrated her birthday tomorrow, leaves behind her partner of ten years, Damon, and their two boys, seven-year-old Kenny and five-year-old Haiden.

Natasha’s brother Sean has set up a fundraiser to provide his ‘beautiful nephews with the life they deserve’.

Ardrossan and Saltcoats Herald:

Sean said: “I’m doing what any brother would do in this situation and looking after the boys as much as I possibly can.

“I want them to have the life my sister always dreamed about giving them.

“My family and myself will never get over the death of my sister but I can make sure the two boys want for nothing in their life.”

Sean said his sister was the most caring person he knew and her loss has left the family devastated.

He hopes that the donations will help provide for the boys the way Natasha would have wanted.

She loved taking them on trips to her favourite place, the Isle of Arran, where they would wild camp, fish and spend time walking up and down the beaches.

Ardrossan and Saltcoats Herald:

Sean said: “She loved them so much. I want them to have total happiness and a care free life.

“I can’t believe the generosity of everyone it means the absolute world to me that everyone has come together to show the boys that their loved so much.

“I just want to say how much I appreciate all the support and love you have shown. Hopefully I can reach the target and beyond to give the boys the life my sister dreamed off.

“Thank you once again I’ll never forget it.”
