Grampian Police can confirm that the body recovered from Fraserburgh Harbour on March 11, 2012, is that of the missing Latvian fisherman, Viktors Asitkovs.

Mr Asitkovs was reported missing to the Police on January 28, 2012, after leaving a party in the town.

Concerns were raised when the fisherman had failed to turn up to work on the trawler ‘Willing Lad’, which had berthed at Fraserburgh.

Mr Asitkovs’ family have been informed of his death.

There appear to be no suspicious circumstances surrounding his death.

A report will be sent to the Procurator Fiscal.
