The family of Yulia Solodyankina have thanked those who helped in the search for their daughter.

The physics student went missing in Edinburgh in June 2013 and a police investigation was launched.

Ms Solodyankina's friends and university classmates had made a number of independent appeals for information.

The 22-year-old's body was found in a rural area near to Arrochar on 9 January. There are no suspicious circumstances surrounding her death.

In a statement, Yulia's mother Ekaterina and father Dimitri said: "We would like to express our gratitude to the police officers in Edinburgh (particularly Craigmillar station), Argyll (particularly Helensburgh) and all across Scotland, Consulate General of Russia in Edinburgh, staff of Edinburgh University, all Yulia's friends and everyone who was helping us for what they have been doing since the disappearance of our daughter Yulia in June 2013.

"This support and assistance made it easier for us to cope with our loss."
