Libbi’s mother Judi had actually formerly said she was preparing herself for the “procedure” of confirmation that the body found was that of her 17-year-old little girl.

Libbi was last seen on September 11 close to where the body was found, having invested the days leading up to her disappearance with family members in Brechin, where her mommy lives, before getting on a train back to Fife.

She had been due to return to an assisted living facility in Kirkcaldy where she was supported in dealing with a range of difficulties, including mental health issues and ADHD.

Judi had said: “They are still looking at DNA and I have been advised not to say anything, but I think it will be a formality.

“When confirmation is made I will be issuing a statement to thank all of those who were so caring and helped in so many ways to get word out there that Libbi was missing.”

Judi said on social media she felt “utterly broken”.
