ITV News correspondent Robert Evelyn reported from the scene:
A day after being told by the police that they had found a body, the parents of teenage Bobby Ann MacLeod visited the place where she was last known to be alive and left their own flowers among the many flowers.
In a card from “Mom and Dad,” they wrote to their “little chick” saying “Our beloved daughter Bobby Ann. We will miss you forever and we will never forget you. I love mom and dad xxx”
The 18-year-old’s family lives a few hundred meters from the bus station where most police investigations are focused on Wednesday. They stood in silence hugging each other for five minutes in front of the flowers. With so many unanswered questions and raw feelings, it was probably the only place he could have some comfort attached to it.
Two city representatives – Johnny Mercer and Luke Pollard – also joined in the salute.
Mercer said he was “shattered” while Pollard called it “another dark day” for the city.
“Let’s collaborate the same way we did after Keyham,” he added.
