A body has been found during a search for a missing teenager in Glasgow.

Police searching for 19-year-old Rhys Bonner from Barlarnark made the discovery in marsh land between Easterhouse and Gartloch Village on Thursday.

Formal identification has yet to take place, however Mr Bonner’s family have been informed of the find.

A post-mortem will take place in due course to establish his cause of death which police say is being treated as unexplained.

Rhys was last seen on Wednesday, July 24, after leaving his home address on Garlieston Road, to meet friends.

The last confirmed sighting was around 7:55pm that night when he was seen walking with a woman at shops in Connisborough Road, Easterhouse before turning onto Gardyne Street.

He failed to return home that night and his family reported him missing on the following Friday.
