Missing: Thomas had not been seen since November 21

It reads: “Around 1250 hrs on Thursday 4 January 2018 the body of a man was recovered from the Forth and Clyde Canal near to Ruchill Street in Maryhill.

“Although formal identification has still to take place, officers believe that it is Thomas Keenan and his family has been informed.

“There are no suspicious circumstances surrounding the death, and a full report will be sent to the Procurator Fiscal.”

The 21-year-old, of Kelvinside Avenue, was last seen at about 5.50am on Tuesday 21 November at the Esso service station on Maryhill Road.
