Police searching for a missing teenager have found a body on an area of land cordoned off in Kirkcaldy, Fife.

The body of a female was discovered at a disused scrapyard at the junction of the town’s Denburn Road and Smeaton Road at about 14:00.

Officers had been looking for Libbi Toledo, 17, who was last seen in Veronica Crescent at about 13:00 on Monday 11 September.

Formal identification of the body is yet to take place.

Following the discovery, police said the death of the woman was being treated as unexplained pending further inquiries.

A report will be submitted to the procurator fiscal.

A news conference where Libbi Toledo’s mother was to make an appeal was cancelled earlier after police said there had been a significant development.

A cordon remains in place close to Kirkcaldy’s Victoria Hospital.

Police had been investigating a number of sightings of the teenager in the town in recent days.
