A body has been found in the search for Graham Challis, missing from Kirkcaldy.
An appeal was launched to find the 59-year-old, who was last seen in the Linktown area at around 7am on Saturday.
Searches were carried out around the Fife Coastal Path and at the beach in Kirkcaldy as part of the investigation.
While he was missing his family said they were “increasingly concerned” and as Mr Challis had never been missing before, it was “completely out of character”.
However police confirmed a man’s body was found in a wooded area near the town’s Beveridge Park at 6.15pm the next day.
Formal identification is yet to take place but the family of Mr Challis have been informed.
There are no suspicious circumstances and a post mortem is due to be carried out.
A Police Scotland spokesperson said: “Around 6.15pm on Sunday, police received a report that a man’s body had been found in a secluded wooded area to the west of Beveridge Park, Kirkcaldy.
“No formal identification has taken place, however, officers have spoken to the family of Graham Challis, who has been missing since Saturday.
“A post mortem examination will be carried out in due course.
“The death is not being treated as suspicious and a report will be submitted to the Procurator Fiscal.”
