A FUNDRAISER has been launched to help raise money for the funeral of a Glasgow man who was found dead yesterday.

Peter Doherty's body was found in Greenhill Road, Paisley, at around 12.40pm on Tuesday, May 10.

His death is being treated as unexplained, but there are not believed to be any suspicious circumstances.

The 53-year-old, from Govan, had been missing for more than two weeks before the discovery.

A JustGiving page has since been launched to help with funeral costs. 

A family friend who set up the fundraiser wrote: "Sadly Peter won't be coming home to his family due to a tragic incident. Peter went missing on April 25, leaving behind his kids, Nicola and family. The family received the worst news at the end of a horrendous two weeks.

"I would be grateful if we could all rustle up some money to help take the stress of funeral costs away from everything else Peter's family is dealing with right now. Thank you for your support, I know it's appreciated."
