Woman's body found on beach

A BODY was recovered from the shoreline near Kirkcudbright yesterday afternoon (Weds).

The grim discovery was made at about 2.30 pm near Balmae.

Formal identification has still to take place, however police yesterday said the family of 72-year-old Joyce Kirkland, who has been missing from her home in Kirkcudbright since March 12, has been informed.

A force spokesman said: “Enquiries are ongoing to establish the exact cause of death, however there are not believed to be any suspicious circumstances.

“A full report will be forwarded to the Procurator Fiscal.”
