John Murphy, 53, disappeared from his home in Dennistoun, Glasgow, in May last year.

Mr Murphy's relatives have been informed of the find.

It is understood the families of other missing people have also been contacted, though the remains have yet to be confirmed as human.

He did not turn up at his workplace and was reported missing by his family that evening.

Mr Murphy is around 5ft 8in and of medium build, with short brown hair which is turning grey.
