Human remains discovered off the coast of Arbroath on Monday have been identified as missing Aberdeen woman Kelli Ferris.

Ms Ferris, 40, had last been seen in September last year.

Police were concerned for her wellbeing as she had a medical condition which required medication.

Her disappearance sparked a search operation which ran over several weeks. Officers said inquiries had not revealed any suspicious circumstances.

Det Ch Insp David Hadden added: "We hope this identification gives Kelli's family some form of closure and our thoughts are with her family at this time."
