The 46-year-old, who police described as "vulnerable", had been missing from her home in the Ruchill area of the city since 1 March.

Strathclyde Police said a woman's body was recovered from the river, near to Mavisbank Gardens, at 17:40 on Monday.

The force said that although the body had not yet been formally identified, it was believed to be Ms McLaughlin.
