Body found in search for Frightened Rabbit singer Scott Hutchinson

Police in Scotland have confirmed that a body has been found in the search for missing Frightened Rabbit singer Scott Hutchison.

Police Scotland discovered a body at Port Edgar near South Queensferry at 8.30pm on Thursday, May 10.

Formal identification has yet to take place, according to police, but the family of Mr Hutchinson have been informed.

The 36-year-old musician was reported missing by his family earlier this week.

A message on the Frightened Rabbit Twitter account said: "We are worried about Scott, who has been missing for a little while now.

"He may be in a fragile state and may not be making the best decisions for himself right now."

He was last active on social media at around 11pm on Tuesday, when he wrote: "Be so good to everyone you love. It's not a given. I'm so annoyed that it's not. I didn't live by that standard and it kills me. Please, hug your loved ones."

Frightened Rabbit were formed in Selkirk, Scotland, in 2003, and released five studio albums.
