By Claire Galloway

Loved ones of missing Scot Peter Doherty have paid heartbreaking tributes after a body was found in the search for the missing dad-of-two.

Police Scotland confirmed the discovery in the Greenhill Road area of Paisley around 12.40pm on Tuesday.

Although formal identification is yet to take place, Peter's family has been made informed.

Nicola Forsyth, mother to Peter's two children, led the tributes on Tuesday.

She said: "Thanks everyone for your lovely comments and messages regarding Peter.

"I spent half my lifetime with him and we have two kids, I am heartbroken don’t know how I will ever be able to cope without seeing him all the time. I just wish I had done more for him, I tried for years but wasn’t enough."

Peter, from Govan, was hailed as a 'decent guy' who 'idolised' his kids on social media, as people sent their condolences to his family.

One said: "So sad to hear this. RIP Pete"

"Heartbreaking. May all his demons be gone and he now has peace", wrote another.

"Sad. I’ve known this guy for many years around town, rest in peace Peter", said one.

Another added: "So sad...Fly high with the angels Peter."

Police said the death is currently being treated as unexplained but there are not thought to be any suspicious circumstances.

A Police Scotland statement said: "The body of a man was found in the Greenhill Road area of Paisley, around 12.40pm today.

"Formal identification has yet to take place, however the family of Peter Doherty, who was reported missing from Govan, has been made aware.

"The death is being treated as unexplained, but there is not believed to be any suspicious circumstances. A report will be submitted to the Procurator Fiscal."

A fundraiser launched to help pay for funeral costs has already reached almost £500.
