Body found at beach confirmed as missing man

Police have confirmed that a body found in the water at an Edinburgh seafront is that of a missing Stirling man.

Max Aitken, 41, was reported missing from Larbert on 15 May, two weeks before the discovery at the Seafield end of Portobello beach.

He was seen on CCTV the same day in Edinburgh and was last seen heading in the direction of the Grassmarket.

A Police Scotland spokesman said a report has been submitted to the procurator fiscal.
