A bone found on a beach at Thurso is believed to be from a man who went missing from his home in the town more than a year ago.

Michael Sinclair, 44, was reported missing in late April 2010 and searches made for him included a disused railway line near Aberdeen.

Northern Constabulary said the bone was found several weeks ago by a member of the public.

Following enquiries, police said it was believed to be from Mr Sinclair.

Officers and search dogs from Northern and Strathclyde Police made a search of the River Thurso immediately after his disappearance.

The British Red Cross also assisted in the search for Mr Sinclair.
