The force said the family of Mr Carter had been informed.

His family had first raised the alarm after the 49-year-old failed to return home from work on Tuesday evening.

They described him as a "loving family man who has never gone missing before."

His death is not being treated as suspicious and a report will be submitted to the Procurator Fiscal.
