THE SISTER of a young man whose body was discovered in Scotland after a mammoth missing person's hunt spoke of the devastating loss of her "beautiful" brother.

The family of Barry Doherty, from Carndonagh, Co Donegal, launched a massive campaign for information on social media and on the streets of Paisley, southwest of Glasgow, after he disappeared on July 15. He had failed to contact friends or family last week on the day he would have turned 25.

A body was discovered in the water shortly after 2pm on Wednesday, at Thornley Dam in Paisley, close to where he went missing. The body was yesterday identified as Mr Doherty.

Mr Doherty's sister Cathie, who had lead the search thanked those who had come to the aid of the family.
