Police carried out a missing person search.
Police carried out a missing person search.

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.

** MISSING PERSON TRACED ** Police would like to thank the public for their assistance in the search of missing person Graham Challis. We can confirm the male has been traced.
