The body of a woman found on the shoreline near Fortrose on the Black Isle has been formally identified.

Her body was found on the shore near Fortrose and Rosemarkie Golf Club around 8.30am on January 30.

The woman has been identified as a Romanian national who was subsequently reported missing on March 22.

There are no suspicious circumstances and a report has been submitted to the Procurator Fiscal.

Police Scotland Detective Inspector Craig Still said: "Our thoughts are with the woman's family and friends at this time.

"They have been fully updated by our officers and ask for privacy at this time.

"I want to take the opportunity to thank everybody who came forward with information or who helped our enquiries in any way in the weeks since she was found."

Police had issued several appeals for information and also created a composite image showing the likeness of the woman in a bid to identify her.

The UK Missing Persons Unit at the National Crime Agency also helped with the investigation.

The woman was described as being white, aged between 25-35 years of age with an athletic build and long reddish blonde or brown hair.
