Police searching for a pensioner with dementia who went missing in Renfrewshire have found a body.

Allan Burns, 71, was last seen on Friday 18 January walking towards Lochwinnoch along a cycle path near his home in Kilbarchan.

The body was discovered in the water at Castle Semple Loch, Lochwinnoch, at about 09:00 on Saturday.

Formal identification has still to take place, however Mr Burns' family have been informed.

A police spokesman said a post-mortem examination would take place but there did not appear to be any suspicious circumstances.
