A man has been arrested in connection with the death of a woman in Perthshire.
Mystery has surrounded the death of Annalise Johnstone, whose body was discovered by a member of the public on a country road near Auchterarder two weeks ago.
Police are treating the case as a murder.
On Thursday morning, Tayside Police Division said a 24-year-old man had been arrested in connection with Ms Johnstone’s death.
Senior investigating officer Detective Superintendent James Smith said: “I can confirm today that we have arrested a 24-year-old man in connection with the death of Annalise, which is now being treated as murder.
“Our thoughts are very much with Annalise’s family and friends, who are still being supported by specialist officers during this difficult time.
“A number of enquiries are being carried out at locations across Tayside as part of our investigations into her death.
“Inquiries have necessitated the closure of the B8062 and I am grateful for the patience of local residents and motorists while this work is being carried out.
“I would also like to take this opportunity to thank members of the public for their assistance during this investigation.”
A statement from the force added: “Police Scotland can confirm that a 24-year-old man has been arrested in connection with the death of 22 year old Annalise Johnstone.
“Her death is being treated as murder.
“Annalise’s body was found in a wooded area at the roadside of B8062 between Auchterarder and Dunning on Thursday, May 10.”
Annalise travelled from her home in Ardorssan, Ayrshire, on Wednesday, May 9, in a silver Ford Galaxy.
She was found dead amongst trees at the edge of the B8062 the following afternoon, sparking a major police investigation.
In recent days, officers targeted a number of sites across Tayside as their probe into Ms Johnstone’s murder widened.
