Police have charged a man in connection with the deaths of a mum and her child who went missing more than 40 years ago.
Renee MacRae, 36, and her son Andrew, 3, vanished while en route to Perthshire in 1976.
On Wednesday police said they had charged a 77-year-old man in connection with their deaths. He was arrested in the north of England.
The man is due in Inverness Sheriff Court on Wednesday.
An investigation into their disappearance has been ongoing since 1976 and recently has been led by Police Scotland’s Major Investigation Team.
The force carried out a forensic search of Leanach Quarry as part of their inquiries earlier this year.
Renee and Andrew left their home in Inverness on November 12, 1976, heading south on the A9 in the direction of Perth.
Their BMW car was discovered on fire in a lay-by near Dalmagarry, a few miles south of the city, later that day.
Detective Inspector Brian Geddes said: “The remains of Renee and Andrew have not been recovered, however the searching of a large quantity of material removed from Leanach Quarry continues.
“I would like to thank everyone who has assisted the investigation, whether during our recent enquiries, or at any time since 1976.
“We would also continue to ask anyone who believes they can assist police to contact 101 or you can e-mail a dedicated inbox at SCDHOLMESInverness@scotland.pnn.police.uk.
