Remains 'could be' missing Tayport woman Susan Reid

Human remains found in north east Fife could be those of missing Newport woman Susan Reid, police have said.

Forensic officers are investigating the discovery in a rural location, close to St Michaels, late on Tuesday night.

A Police Scotland spokesman said the inquiry was "at a very early stage and no further information is available at this time".

The discovery comes amid an ongoing search for Ms Reid. The 56-year-old has not been seen since January.

Ch Insp Adrian Annandale said: "Investigations continue into the circumstances surrounding the find at Tentsmuir and we have informed Susan's family of the discovery and specially trained Family Liaison Officers continue to work closely with the family, as they have been throughout the missing person inquiry."
