Body Found In Reservoir Search For Missing Boy

Police searching for a teenage boy who disappeared after getting into difficulty at a reservoir in Scotland have found a body.

The 14-year-old was reported missing at Torduff Reservoir in Edinburgh's Bonaly Country Park on Monday evening.

Police officers, firefighters and a helicopter search team were sent to the reservoir, where a body was discovered overnight.

The identity of the deceased has not yet been confirmed.

However, a spokesman for Police Scotland said officers were trying to trace the boy's family and inform them of the discovery.

Torduff is one of seven reservoirs in Bonaly Country Park, which is part of the Pentland Hills Regional Park.

It is popular with visitors because of its moorland and woodland trails, as well as its views of the Edinburgh skyline to the north.
