A body has been found in the search for a 19-year-old girl who went missing two weeks ago.

Jade McGrath was last seen in the Leachkin area of Inverness on November 28.

After a large-scale search involving police dogs, the RAF and specialist officers, police confirmed that a body was found in Inverness, Scotland, at around 3pm this afternoon.

The 19-year-old is from Aviemore and her family has been informed of Sunday's discovery.

A police statement said: 'Police Scotland can confirm they have recovered a body from Lawers Way, Inverness at about 3pm on Sunday.

'Formal identification is still to take place.'

When the search for Jade started, police said they considered her to be 'vulnerable'. 

The family said in a statement released by Police Scotland: 'As each day goes on, we are growing increasingly concerned for Jade and we just desperately want answers and to know where she is.

'Anyone who was in the Leachkin area last Wednesday afternoon from around 1.45pm, please think back and if you think you might have seen anything please call the police.

'She had no phone or money with her and she would most likely have been in a distressed state if you saw her.

'We are grateful to everyone who has helped so far and are just desperate for news.

'If Jade is reading this, we want you to know that we love you very much and we just want you home safe.'

Jade is around 5ft 2in and petite, with long, bleached blonde hair with dark roots and faint wisps of blue in the ends.

She was wearing a khaki green parka-style jacket with a fluffy hood, black leggings and Nike trainers.

The teenager has an Alice In Wonderland tattoo on one of her forearms, with diamond and club symbols from a pack of cards on her fingers and a small diamond tattoo on her hand.
