A candlelit vigil is to be held in remembrance of teenager, Liam Smith who went missing four months ago.
Candles will light up Aberdeen’s Broad Street with mourners taking part in a 2-minute silence by the water fountain outside Marshall College.
More than 200 people are expected to attend the vigil on Saturday at 8:15pm.
Police confirmed the tragic news with formal identification of the 16-year-old after a body was found in remote woodlands south of Banchory on Friday.
The teenager was last seen on 17 November after boarding a bus in Aberdeen.
Police Scotland treated the death as not suspicious.
Liam’s mother Alix released the following statement through Police Scotland: “Our hearts are broken.
“We would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who has been involved in the search for Liam including members of the public who took it upon themselves to help.
“Thank you also to everyone who has left messages of support which has provided us with comfort at extremely difficult times.”
Thousands across Scotland on Social Media have expressed their support to the grieving family.
