Police divers searching for a head teacher who fell through ice into a loch near Kinross have recovered a body.
Errol Primary school head teacher Alan McKenzie, 48, is understood to have fallen through the ice while sledging at Dow Loch during a family day out.
Emergency crews, two helicopters and a water rescue team were called to the incident just before 15:00 on Monday.
Police Scotland said a man's body was recovered at about 1725 on Thursday.
It has not yet been identified.
Earlier, in a statement issued through police, Mr McKenzie's partner said it had been a "trying and very difficult time for us all".
The Scottish Fire and Rescue Service firefighters had to travel to the area on foot as it was a considerable distance from the road, climbing a 150ft ridge to gain access to the loch.
