The family of a 14-year-old girl found dead on the North Queensferry shoreline have thanked the police and public for their support during the search for her.

The body of Jasmine Macquaker, from Edinburgh, was found at about 7am on Monday.

She was last seen at Dalmeny railway station by South Queensferry at around 8.30pm on Sunday.

Formal identification has now taken place and Police Scotland said the death is not being treated as suspicious. A report will be sent to the procurator fiscal.

A statement from Jasmine's family released through police said: "Mr and Mrs Macquaker have been appraised with all the facts concerning Jasmine's last hours.

"They are extremely grateful for all the support from the police in this tragic case as well as support from friends.

"At this stage, understandably, they request that everyone respect their privacy to grieve in peace at this very difficult time.''
