Body in German river 'not believed to be missing Scot'
Liam Colgan was on his brother's stag weekend in Hamburg when he disappeared.
A body has been found in a German river near the area where a missing Scot was last seen.
Liam Colgan, from Inverness, was on his brother's stag weekend in Hamburg when he disappeared in the early hours of February 10.
A man's body was recovered from the River Elbe on Sunday morning near the HHLA Container Terminal in central Hamburg.
However, it has not been formally identified and German police said on Sunday afternoon they do not believe it is Mr Colgan.
According to the Hamburg Morning Post, the body of a sailor who drowned in the river earlier this week has not been recovered.
Mr Colgan's brother Eamonn, whose stag weekend the group was on, said he would not stop searching for him.
A spokesman for the Lucie Blackman Trust, which represents the Colgan family, said: "We are aware of the unconfirmed reports and we stress that the search for Liam continues.
"We have also had reported sightings of Liam during the past week so we ask that you keep searching in all areas of Hamburg and further afield throughout Germany.
"The reported sightings of a confused man suggest that he could be moving about so please keep looking in your area and keep advertising the poster. With your help we are hopeful for his safe return home."
A worker at a bakery in the town of Buxtehude, around 15 miles outside Hamburg, claims to have seen Mr Colgan four days after he vanished.
Bettina Diwinski told the Sunday Mail: "We saw a photograph of the man in the newspapers and we realised he had been here.
"One of my colleagues is certain she saw him. He looked lost and confused and then he left the shop. He looked lonely."
