Police are investigating the discovery of what appears to be human remains in a Glenrothes park.
The discovery was made in the town’s Riverside Park shortly before 4pm today (Tuesday).
Officers confirmed at this stage it is not possible to tell if the body is male or female and a full forensic examination is currently being undertaken.
Chief Inspector Stevie Hamilton said: “Whilst the investigation is still at an early stage we have made contact with the next of kin of a number of local missing men from the Glenrothes area to make them aware of this discovery.
“A detailed forensic examination will be required and this will take some time to complete.”
