Police divers, who had been searching the River Leven for Thomas Brown since Monday, recovered the body of a young man yesterday.
Formal identification has still to take place, but police confirmed that the search for 17-year-old Thomas had been stood down. The teenager was last seen in Methil at 10pm on Friday after becoming separated from his friends during a night out.
It was one of two discoveries of bodies by police in Fife yesterday, as officers searching for missing Methil woman Catriona Kennedy confirmed they had discovered a woman's body on a beach.
Ms Kennedy, 29, was last seen in Leven at 10.30pm on Monday. She was reported missing on Tuesday. The female body was recovered from a beach at Dumbarnie Links, near Upper Largo, after being discovered by a dog walker.
Chief Inspector Graeme Kinmond said: "Police officers have been searching for two missing people, one reported to us on Saturday and the other last night.
"Formal identification on both bodies has yet to take place, however I can confirm we have now stood down the searches."
