A TEENAGER posted missing from the a major Highland music festival site has been traced safe and well.

Northern Constabulary issued an apeal for public information after eighteen-year-old Zoe McArthur was reported missing from the site of the three-day RockNess festival on Saturday evening.

In a statement released on Sunday, police said they had traced Ms McArthur at the site safe and well.

The event drew to a close on Sunday night following a series of incidents.

A 19-year-old woman and a 20-year-old man were taken to Raigmore Hospital from the site of the outdoor festival in the early hours of Sunday morning.

It is believed they may have consumed substances including so-called "legal highs". They remain in hospital and their condition is not life-threatening.

That followed the death at the site overnight on Saturday of a 19-year-old man from the Edinburgh area who police believe may have consumed drugs.

And on Friday, two painters and decorators from the Glasgow area died on the A9 near Ralia after the van they were travelling in was in collision with a bus making its way from Edinburgh to the Loch Ness festival site.

Police reported 65 positive drug searches after the first day of RockNess but declared themselves happy with the behaviour of the vast majority of the crowd.

Health chiefs later issued a warning over the use of so-called "legal highs".
