Police have said there appear to be no suspicious circumstances in connection with human remains found in Argyll last week.

The discovery, near Arrochar, has been linked to the search for 22-year-old Russian student Yulia Solodyankina.

The Edinburgh University physics student was reported missing in June of last year.

Police Scotland said formal identification has still to take place and DNA tests are to be carried out.

A spokesman added: "Inquiries are continuing and no further information is available at this time.

"However, there appear to be no suspicious circumstances in connection with the death."

Ms Solodyankina was last spotted at Glasgow's Buchanan Street bus station on 7 June.

Her parents made an emotional appeal after she disappeared, describing their daughter as "our life".

Based on previous trips Ms Solodyankina had made, detectives believed she boarded a bus in Buchanan Street, with the most likely destination the Highlands or Argyll.
