Body found following loch search

A body has been found in the search for a man missing on Loch Lomond.

Emergency services were called to assist at around 8pm last night after a report that a man had fallen into water near Rowardennan on the east shores of the loch.

The man, thought to be in his mid 60s, had been out fishing in the area.

Divers from the marine unit of Police Scotland discovered the body near Rowerdennan pier at around 1pm.

Inspector Adrian Wright said: "Police divers have sadly recovered a body from the water and we will now follow the process of confirming the identity of the body.

"Police would like to thank the assistance provided from both the public and other agencies, including the National Park, Loch Lomond Rescue Boats, Loch Lomond Mountain Rescue and Scottish Fire and Rescue Service, in their search activities during this tragic incident."

Police said efforts to trace the man's family are ongoing.
