POLICE have confirmed plans for fresh searches in the search to solve the 42-year-old disappearance of toddler Andrew Macrae and his mother Renee – amid rumours officers plan to drain a flooded quarry.

Reports have surfaced that officers intend to drain Leanach Quarry in the coming days as they continue investigations into the pair’s disappearance on November 12, 1976. Their burnt out BMW car was found in a lay-by at Dalmagarry, 10 miles outside Inverness. Their bodies were never found.

Officers would not be drawn on the reports of plans to explore Leanach Quarry, ahead of possible announcements later today. But they did confirm plans for fresh searches.

A Police Scotland spokesperson said: “Detectives investigating the murders of Renee MacRae and her son Andrew are expected to begin searching an area of interest near Inverness within the coming days.

“We are unable to comment further at this stage.”
