A body has been found in a river in the search for a man missing from Kilmarnock for more than a month.

Alan Galbraith was last seen on the 5th of February after spending an evening with his wife and friends.

The alarm was raised after the 58 year old dad of 2 failed to turn up for work.

Police confirmed they they were called to a report of a body being discovered in the River Irvine near Dreghorn Road in Irvine on Saturday afternoon.

The force said: "Although formal identification has still to take place, it is believed to be 58 year-old Alan Galbraith who has been missing from Kilmarnock since Sunday February 5, 2017. His family has been informed."

A post mortem examination will take place to establish the exact cause of death, although the police said his death is not being treated as suspicious.

Officers will also submit a report to the procurator fiscal in relation to the death.
