Police officers looking for a missing student from Glasgow have confirmed that a body has been found in a park.

A man's body was found in Pollok Park on Friday. A spokesman for Strathclyde Police said there appeared to be no suspicious circumstances surrounding the death.

Mr McGinty's parents previously made an emotional appeal for his safe return.

His father Stephen, 40, and mother Alison Graham, 37, appealed for him to get in touch at a media conference.

They described him as a very well-loved member of the family.

Jordan was last seen leaving for Cardonald College where he was studying to become an electrician.

His parents said that morning was like any other and there was nothing out of the ordinary in Jordan's behaviour.
