A body has been found in Loch Ness during the search for a missing woman from Bath.

The body was found at around 1.45pm on Wednesday (1 June), close to the A831 at Drumnadrochit, a week after Bilin Chen was reported missing.

She was understood to have been found in the water at Loch Ness, one of the most visited tourism spots in Scotland.

The 26-year-old was reported missing from Bath on 26 May, prompting a police appeal for her safe return.

Ms Chen's family have been informed, but no formal identification has taken place.

Officers from Police Scotland have been liaising with her family, a force statement said.

Police do not believe there are suspicious circumstances surrounding the death, and say a report will be sent to the Procurator Fiscal.
