Officers searching for a missing Dundee man have found a body in a nature reserve near Stonehaven, Scotland.

Tayside and Grampian police had been searching for the 30-year-old, said to be a keen walker and ornithologist, since he disappeared on Saturday.

Although the body has not been formerly identified, police have reportedly indicated to his family that it is likely to be Euan.

The Fowlsheugh nature reserve his known for its 70m high cliffs, and it is thought Euan may have died in a tragic accident, falling while trying to photograph bird life.

From the family home in Perth, his mother, Mary, told The Courier: ''If it is Euan, we've lost a very special person. It is likely it is Euan but the police haven't confirmed it. We've been up there all day and are still in shock about the whole thing.''
