Hollie McClymont: Body In Sea Identified
A body recovered from the sea has been formally identified as a 14-year-old girl who was last seen in difficulty in the water.
Hollie McClymont, from Glasgow, was reported missing after going swimming off Barry Island in South Wales on Sunday.
More than 40 specialist officers, a helicopter and coastguards were deployed in the search for the missing teenager.
Chief Inspector Marc Lamerton, of South Wales Police, confirmed her body was found in Fontygary, a small seaside village three miles southwest of Barry.
"Our thoughts are with Hollie's family at this difficult time," he said.
"I would like to thank the community of Barry and the media for their support throughout this incident."
Hollie had gone to South Wales with her mother, Sarah, for a holiday.
Police said they chose the area because they have relatives there.
The teenager was seen getting into difficulty at about 2.45pm on Sunday at Whitmore Bay, a popular destination for sun-seekers.
Coastguards said they were not alerted for an hour, something they said they were "dumfounded" by.
