The body of a man has been recovered on the River Oykel in Sutherland.
Police said that the discovery was made earlier today.
It comes after a major search was carried out to find Ian McMullen, 80, from Hertfordshire.
Mr McMullen was reported missing on Thursday evening after not returning from a fishing expedition on the river near Oykel Bridge.
Chief Inspector Iain MacLelland said: “Our thoughts are with Mr McMullen’s family at this sad time.
“I would like to take the opportunity to thank the partner agencies and members of the public who have helped with our enquires and search activity.
“There are no apparent suspicious circumstances and a report will be submitted to the Procurator Fiscal in due course.”
While the body has yet to be formally identified, Mr McMullen’s family have been informed.
