Is David Yates Dead?

Officers discovered a body of a man in Mugdock Reservoir during their search in the surrounding Mugdock Country Park.


Although formal identification has yet to take place, Yates’ family has been informed.

The investigation is ongoing, and police have not established any evidence suggesting anyone else was involved in Marelle’s death. Reports will be submitted to the Procurator Fiscal in due course.

Marelle, who was 29 weeks pregnant, was last seen on Sunday night, and her unborn baby did not survive. She was a highly popular teacher at Sandwood Primary, and her death has shocked and saddened the school community.

The headteacher, Fiona Donnelly, paid tribute to Marelle, describing her as a kind and considerate person who used her artistic talents to make a significant contribution to the school’s success.

Floral tributes were left outside her home in Glasgow, and a flag outside Sandwood Primary was flying at half-mast.

During the investigation, a cordon was set up at several pathways around the loch, with dog walkers and park users directed away from the scene.

Specialist officers unloaded a van full of diving gear, including diving cylinders, wet suits, and three canoes in the area.

Nearby woodland was also being searched, and a police helicopter patrolled overhead. Two officers guarded a section of track across the water from Mugdock Castle, where police in forensic suits were searching through the undergrowth.

Marelle left the Highlands at 17 to study musical theatre in Glasgow and later pursued a career as a teacher. Her death has affected many, and the investigation into her murder continues.
