A body has been found in the search for missing Frightened Rabbit member Scott Hutchison, according to police.
The 36-year-old singer went missing in the early hours of Wednesday morning after leaving a hotel in South Queensferry, Scotland, earlier this week, when he left a cryptic message on his Twitter saying “I’m away now. Thanks.”
“Be so good to everyone you love. It’s not a given. I’m so annoyed that it’s not. I didn’t live by that standard and it kills me. Please, hug your loved ones,” he said.
“He may be in a fragile state and may not be making the best decisions for himself right now,” the band said in a statement.
Hutchinson’s brother Grant asked fans for any information about his “brother/bandmate/best friend” and added that the missing singer did not have his phone, which was with police.
Police Scotland said that they had found a body Thursday evening at a port near where he was last seen.

Officers said in a statement Friday morning that the body was a man, but that there had not yet been any official family confirmation of his identity.
Frightened Rabbit, based in Glasgow, has been playing music together since 2003 and also includes Hutchison’s brother Grant.
The band has amassed a loyal following and praise from other musicians such as The National’s Aaron Dessner, who produced their last album in 2016.
They had been scheduled to play four shows this summer, including one in support of American indie rock’s Father John Misty in two weeks.
