James wrote on Facebook: “It breaks my heart to post this.

“The police have just informed us that Sean McKenna has been found dead in the loch.

“We are devastated at our loss and we have lost out youngest son.

“Hopefully he’s up in heaven looking fown on us with his big, happy smile.”

Sean, who lived on Townhead's Teviot Street, left a friend's house in Derwent Drive at around 3am but was not seen again.

During the campaign to find Sean his image was shown to 60,000 football fans at Parkhead. 

James and mother Lorraine said previously they were overwhelmed by the daily searches organised by concerned locals and fellow Celtic supporters.

Drumpellier Country Park had been swept for signs of Sean but, until now, no trace had been found. 

It had been out of character for him to be out of touch with his family.

A Police Scotland spokeswoman said: “Enquiries are ongoing to confirm the identity of the man.

“However the family of Sean McKenna have been informed.”
