Police searching for a St Andrews University student who went missing after a night out with friends say they have found a body on a beach in the town.
Kieran McCann (18), a first year student from Los Angeles, was last seen by friends in the early hours of Wednesday morning.
Sadly, a body was recovered from The Scores area yesterday (Thursday).
Detective Inspector John Anderson, who is overseeing the investigation, said: “Whilst formal identification of the man has yet to take place we believe that he is a student from the University of St Andrews who had been reported missing.
“His death is being treated as unexplained but there appears to be no apparent suspicious circumstances.”
