One of the two members of the Cameroon Commonwealth Games team who went missing from Aberdeen has been traced - in London.

Police Scotland says that, while one of the wrestlers is known to be "safe and well", "enquiries are continuing to locate the other athlete."

The wrestlers, aged 26 and 31, were reported missing from their base near Aberdeen Sports Village on Wednesday.

Cameroon's 47-strong team started their pre-games training there last week.

The Commonwealth Games begin in Glasgow on Wednesday.

Seven members of the Cameroon team for the London Olympics disappeared while in Britain in August 2012, while the nation's football squad arrived a day late for this summer's World Cup in Brazil following a bonus payment dispute.
