Police in Dundee have found a missing tear gas canister and holder.
The items were lost by an on-duty Tayside Police officer from Tuesday night through to Wednesday morning.
However the force confirmed on Thursday evening that the items had been "safely recovered".
The officer was working in different areas of Dundee, which had made it difficult to find the canister.
Tayside Police asked for anyone who found the canister, which had the words 'police use only' on it, to hand it in and warned it could be dangerous.
A police spokeswoman said instructions had been given to officers regarding security of equipment.
Tear gas is classed as an offensive weapon in Scotland.
