A BODY of a woman was found in Longniddry yesterday evening at about 8pm.

A Police Scotland statement said: "Formal identification has yet to take place, however the family of 46-year-old Maureen Steele, reported missing from Tranent on Saturday, have been informed."

Maureen was last seen leaving her home in Tranent last Friday.

Police said then: “It's out of character for Maureen not to be in touch with her family or friends and they are very worried. We just want to know she is safe and well."
