Body recovered from Firth of Clyde may be missing man

Police searching for a missing 70-year-old have recovered a man’s body from the Firth of Clyde.

The family of Stewart Leask has been informed of the find near Montgomerie Crescent in Saltcoats, North Ayrshire, on Friday afternoon.

Formal identification has yet to take place.

Mr Leask, from Milngavie in East Dunbartonshire, was last seen by his wife at their holiday home in Whiting Bay, Arran, on February 3.

He is thought to have headed towards Glenashdale Falls with his German shepherd, Corrie.

A post-mortem examination will be carried out but the death is not being treated as suspicious.
