The body of a man has been found during the search for Liam Colgan in Humburg.
The Dundee United fan went missing while on a stag do in the German city on February 10.
Liam, 29, from Inverness but studied at Perth College, vanished sparking a major search with his family making a base in Hamburg to join in with search efforts.
However, the body of a man has been recovered from the River Elbe this morning, according to the Lucie Blackman Trust – a charity that aids families of missing people abroad.
A statement read: “Whilst formal identification is yet to be carried out, Mr Colgan’s driving licence was in the pocket of the jacket, and the clothes were those he was wearing the night he disappeared.
“The Trust asks that Mr Colgan’s family be given space and privacy to grieve at this difficult time.”
Several appeals have been made to help find Liam alive, with his Dundee-based family never giving up hope on finding him.
Lucie Blackman Trust’s chief executive, Matthew Searle said that a huge amount of people would be impacted by today’s news.
He said: “An astonishing amount of support has been apparent in this case – the search for Liam has been joined by thousands of people, both German and British, and we would like to thank all of them for their support.
“Our thoughts are of course with Liam’s family and friends today.”
Liam’s family also wish to thank everyone for the “incredible support” they have received.
