A BODY discovered in a Borders forest by a search party is believed to be that of a man missing for almost a week.

Angus Clyde, 58, was last seen leaving his home in Traquair, near Innerleithen, Peeblesshire, at around 7.10am on Monday, November 19, to go to work.

However, he failed to show up and when he did not return home that evening his family contacted police.
