Police have informed the family of a missing woman from Ayrshire that a body has been found.

Caroline McCafferty was last seen in the Rivergate Shopping Centre in Irvine last Monday.

The body was discovered in a property in the Parterre area of the town a week later, on 5 November.

Formal identification has not yet taken place, and a post mortem examination will be carried out to establish the cause of death.

Detectives are treating the death as unexplained, and a full report will be sent to the procurator fiscal.
