Human remains found on a riverbank in East Ayrshire have been identified as those of a 49-year-old man who disappeared more than three years ago.

Daniel Ruddy, from Galston, was last seen by his brother in September 2013 and reported missing a month later.

A dog walker found his remains near the River Irvine in Galston on 1 November. They were later identified as Mr Ruddy's following forensic tests.

Police said there were no suspicious circumstances surrounding his death.
