A man’s body has been found during the search for a missing student in Helensburgh.
The discovery was made on the coast at around 3.45pm on Friday during the search for 22-year-old Rufus Brickell from Edinburgh.
The Heriot Watt University student, originally from Bristol, was last seen boarding a train from Glasgow Queen Street Station to Kilpatrick Station on October 6.
Formal identification has yet to take place, however Mr Brickell’s family have been informed.
In a statement issued through Police Scotland last week, the family spoke of their “shock at his disappearance” and appealed for him to get in touch.
A police spokesman confirmed the find.
He said: “We can confirm that around 3.45pm on Friday, 25 October 2019, the body of a man was found on the coast at Helensburgh.
“Formal identification has yet to take place however the family of 22-year-old Rufus Brickell who was reported missing from Edinburgh on Sunday, 6 October 2019 has been informed.”
