The body of a 28-year-old man from the Western Isles who went missing in India last month has been found, police have said.

David Booth, from Stornoway, was reported missing by his family on 31 May.

Police in India said his body was found in the Kullu area.

In a statement, Mr Booth's family described him as a "gentle soul" who loved life and had previously travelled in Brazil and Eastern Europe.

Police Scotland said his death did not appear to be suspicious.

Mr Booth's family said: "David was a loving son, brother, uncle, nephew, brother-in-law and friend.

"He was a gentle soul and loved life, especially travelling the world to places like Brazil, Eastern Europe and India, where he made many friends.

"He'll be sorely missed by all that knew him and we take comfort that he died having lived such a full life and in a country he loved travelling in."
