Police in Fife have finally confirmed that a body found in Kirkcaldy last month has now been formally identified as that of missing teenager Libbi Toledo.
Libbi, aged 17, was reported missing around 1.45am on Tuesday September 12 when she didn’t return to her accommodation in the town.
Her body was discovered by officers searching for the missing teenager within a disused scrapyard at the junction of Denburn Road and Smeaton Road around 2.20pm on Thursday September 21.
Police continue to work with the Scottish Fatalities Investigation Unit to fully explore the circumstances of Libbi’s death which is not being treated as suspicious.
Chief Inspector Adrian Annandale, local area commander for Central Fife, said: “This is a tragic loss of a young life and our heartfelt condolences are with Libbi’s family and friends at this very difficult time.
“I want to take this opportunity to extend my sincere thanks to everyone who supported our investigation by coming forward with possible sightings and sharing our appeals for information.”
A vigil was held for Libbi in Kirkcaldy by friends and family members on Saturday night.
