Police believe they have recovered the body of a missing young Glasgow woman from the River Clyde. 

The tragic find is believed to be Lexi Carmichael, 21, who was first reported missing on Wednesday, December 11.

The discovery was made on Monday and comes after weeks of officers searching the stretch of water and other locations in the city. 

Police previously tracked down her last movements to St Vincent Street in the city centre heading in the direction of Queen Street. 

But today, the force said they had told her family of the discovery. Formal identification is still to take place and the death is not being treated as suspicious.
