A body found in a Glasgow park was a pensioner who had been missing from her home in Lanarkshire since last Monday.

Wilhelmina Rooney, known as Anne, 71, was last seen by her husband at their home in East Kilbride.

Police confirmed that her body had been found near Tynecastle Street, Glasgow, on Sunday, and said her death was not being treated as suspicious.

On Friday, members of Mrs Rooney's family made an emotional appeal for her return.

A large-scale search, involving police dogs and helicopters, had taken place.

Sightings of the pensioner were reported in East Kilbride and her bus pass appeared to have been used on Glasgow buses.
