THE body of an angler who went missing while on a camping trip with his father last week has been found, police said yesterday.

Michael Pringle, 25, from Kilmarnock, had set up camp for a weekend's pike fishing on the shores of Loch Awe, near Kilchurn Castle, in Argyll.

He went missing in the early hours of Sunday February 3 after going for a drink in a local pub with his father. The men left together but later became separated.
