Body found in sea at Skye identified as Kirkcaldy man

Artist's impression of man found near Kyleakin A new artist's impression of the man was released earlier this month

A body found in the sea near Kyleakin on Skye last year has been identified following a five-month public appeal.

Police Scotland has named the man as Alan Younger, 48, from Kirkcaldy in Fife. His death is not being treated as suspicious.

His body was found in the water at Kyleside on 9 September.

Experts in forensics and human anatomy at the University of Dundee created an artist's impression of Mr Younger to aid the effort to identify his body.

The university's Centre for Anatomy and Human Identification created the impression of the man from information provided by Police Scotland.

The image was released on 4 February.

Previous public appeals for help identifying the body led to 24 possible names, but police ruled them all out from the inquiries.
