The body of a Cam­bus­lang man who went miss­ing on Fri­day has been found in Ar­gyll.

Ian Saun­ders was re­cov­ered from Loch Fyne near to In­ver­aray by the coast­guard on Mon­day af­ter­noon.

The 51-year-old, from the Kirkhill area of the town, had been re­ported miss­ing by his fam­ily on

the evening of June 30.

A spokes­woman for Po­lice Scot­land saisd: “Around 12.20pm hours on Mon­day, July 3, 2017, the body of a man was re­cov­ered from Loch Fyne near to In­ver­aray by mem­bers of the Coast­guard.

“Al­though a for­mal iden­ti­fi­ca­tion has still to take place, it is be­lieved to be that of Ian Saun­ders who had been miss­ing from Cam­bus­lang since Fri­day. There are no sus­pi­cious cir­cum­stances sur­round­ing the death and rel­a­tives of Mr Saun­ders have been in­formed of the dis­cov­ery. A re­port will be sent to the procu­ra­tor fis­cal.”

Po­lice launched an ap­peal for in­for­ma­tion when Ian did not re­turn home on Fri­day evening. He was last seen by col­leagues around 8.20am at The Min­eral Yard in Clark­ston. Shortly af­ter ar­riv­ing at the prop­erty, he left again.

Po­lice had searched CCTV footage in a bid to trace Ian’s white BMW 118 and con­ducted in­quiries in the St An­drews area of Fife as Ian had of­ten vis­ited there.

There was how­ever, no trace of him un­til the sad dis­cov­ery on Mon­day.
