Police investigating the discovery of a body pulled from a river in Edinburgh are appealing for information into his final movements.

The alarm was raised shortly before 8am on Saturday April 10 after the grim discovery was made at the Water of Leith near Couper Street in the capital.

Police say the family of the 67-year-old have been made aware and his death is not thought to be suspicious.

He was last seen around 6.35am on Friday in Leith Walk, outside a food shop near the junction with Pilrig Street.

His body was found around 7.55am the next day.

Cops have now released a description of the man.

A statement read: "Officers are still working to find answers for his family and are keen to speak to anyone who may be able to help in establishing the man’s movements after 6.35am on Friday.

"He was wearing a dark red anorak with a fur trim hood, dark blue jeans, black leather Doc Martin boots and a black beanie hat. He is described as 5ft 5ins, of slim build and with grey hair."

Detective Constable Karen Durham said: “We do not believe his death is suspicious but it is important that we establish how and why the man came to be near the Water of Leith.

"In particular, we are keen to find out if he went home on Friday morning or not.

“Anyone who may have seen him or who can help is asked to call us on 101, quoting incident 0869 of Saturday, 10 April, 2021.”
