A body found in the River Leny in the Trossachs has been confirmed as that of a missing 37-year-old camper.

David Donnelly, from Denny, near Falkirk, was last seen late on Friday evening at a makeshift camp near the A84 between Strathyre and Callander.

His body was found by Central Scotland Police divers on Tuesday in an area known as Annie's Straight.

Officers said the investigation into the circumstances surrounding his death was continuing.

A post mortem is to be carried out and a report has been submitted to the procurator fiscal.

Mountain rescuers, search dogs and police divers had been involved in the hunt for the 37-year-old.

Police had been concerned about Mr Donnelly as he was unfamiliar with the area and was not equipped for being outdoors.
