Missing man’s body found in South Queensferry

By Carla Simpson

A body found in the water at Port Edgar is thought to be that of a man reported missing earlier in the week.

Lothian and Borders Police believe that the body, which was discovered by a member of the public yesterday, is that of Peter Ingram, 37. 

 Mr Ingram went missing from his home in Meadowbank on Sunday and was last seen in the Restalrig area on Tuesday morning.  His family and friends said his disappearance was very out of character and expressed concerns for his welfare.

 The police are currently awaiting formal identification and say that there are no suspicious circumstances surrounding the discovery of the body.
