The family of a man who had been reported missing following a holiday in Lanzarote have confirmed he has died.
A search was launched for Robert Campbell, from Uddingston, after he was last seen heading to César Manrique-Lanzarote Airport on Thursday.
The 44-year-old, who had been on his first trip abroad, had been described as “vulnerable” and ended up separated from a friend he was due to fly home with.
His sister, Margueritte Devine, confirmed on Thursday that he had been found dead on the Spanish island.
She said: “Sadly our brother died in Lanzarote yesterday and we’re left with a bill of six and 10 thousand pounds in funeral fees.
“We are desperate to get him home asap, so I am writing this to reach out from my heart to help us bring him home.”
Mr Campbell’s cause of death has yet to be confirmed.
A fundraiser has been launched in an effort to help the family return his body to the UK. You can donate here.
A Police Scotland Spokesperson said: “The body of a man was found in Lanzarote by Spanish police around 12.50pm on Wednesday, May 17, 2023.
“He is still to be formally identified but the family of Robert Campbell, 44, who had been reported missing from Uddingston on Thursday, 11 May, have been made aware.”
The UK Foreign Office have been contacted for comment.
