The body of a man in his late teens or early twenties has been pulled from the Firth of Forth near Burntisland.
Police were called to the shore near Aberdour Road at around 10.20am on Friday, March 19, where the young man was found.
Detectives have appealed to the public for help to identify the man and trace his family. His death is not being treated as suspicious and a full report will be sent to the Procurator Fiscal.
Officers are also trying to establish if he is the same man who was seen acting in a concerning manner on the Forth Road Bridge on Tuesday, March 9.
He is described as white, aged in his late teens to early twenties, between 5ft 7in to 5ft 9in in height, of very slim build with short blond to light brown hair.
He was wearing grey Lonsdale jogging trousers, a grey hooded Saltrock jumper and blue Adidas high-top trainers.
Detective sergeant Conrad Musgrave, of Dunfermline Police Station, said: “We are carrying out extensive enquiries to find out who this young man is and trace his family.
“We are also working to establish if he is the same person who we previously appealed for information on, after being seen acting in a concerning manner on the Forth Road Bridge in the early hours of Tuesday, March 9.
“I would urge anyone who may recognise this description, or who has any information that may assist us to please contact Dunfermline Police Station through 101 quoting reference 0898 of March 19.”
