Missing Libbi Toledo

Police have formally identified the body of a 17-year-old girl who went missing in Fife.

Elisabeth Toledo, known as Libbi, was reported missing in the early hours of September 12 after she failed to return to her accommodation in Kirkcaldy.

Her body was discovered by officers at a disused scrapyard on the junction of the town's Denburn Road and Smeaton Road on September 21.

Chief Inspector Adrian Annandale said: "This is a tragic loss of a young life and our heartfelt condolences are with Libbi's family and friends at this very difficult time.

"I want to take this opportunity to extend my sincere thanks to everyone who supported our investigation by coming forward with possible sightings and sharing our appeals for information."

Police are working with the Scottish Fatalities Investigation Unit to explore the circumstances of Libbi's death, which is not being treated as suspicious.
