The family of Yulia Solodyankina today thanked those who assisted in the search for her.
Yulia was reported missing in Edinburgh in June 2013 sparking a large police operation to find her.
During the missing person enquiry, many members of the public, including Yulia’s friends and university classmates made a number of independent appeals for information.
The 22-year-old’s body was found in a rural area near to Arrochar on January 9. There are no suspicious circumstances surrounding her death.
In a statement issued via Police Scotland, Yulia’s mother Ekaterina and father Dimitri said: “We would like to express our gratitude to the police officers in Edinburgh (particularly Craigmillar station), Argyll (particularly Helensburgh) and all across Scotland, Consulate General of Russia in Edinburgh, staff of Edinburgh University, all Yulia’s friends and everyone who was helping us for what they have been doing since disappearance of our daughter Yulia in June 2013.
