Horror Find On Old Hoover Site
An area in Cambuslang was cordoned off by police after human remains were found.
Police launched an investigation and have been searching near the old Hoover site after the grim discovery.
Eyewitnesses said dozens of officers were involved and a forensics tent was set up.
Early reports suggest the discovery may have been made by workmen in the area.
A spokesperson for Police Scotland said: "Police Scotland can confirm that inquiries are underway following the discovery of human remains found at Dale Avenue in Cambuslang on Tuesday, April 7 2015.
"Further examination of the remains will be carried out. A search of the area is currently underway and officers are conducting enquiries to establish the identity and circumstances surrounding the discovery."
It is not yet clear if the remains are male or female or how long they had been on the site.
Police believe that human remains found in a South Lanarkshire town could belong to a man who has been missing since 2012.
Enquiries continue following the discovery by workmen digging at an industrial estate in Cambuslang's Dale Avenue.
Officers from Police Scotland confirmed that the body was male and the remains had been there "for a considerable time".
Further forensic tests have still to be carried out to establish the identity of the man, however following police say they believe the body to be that of a man reported missing from Blantyre in June 2012. The man was last seen by a neighbour walking towards Cambuslang on the evening of Saturday June 16th.
At the time, officers from Strathclyde Police carried out an extensive search of the local area, making door to door enquiries and speaking to bus and taxi drivers.
Police also checked CCTV and used the force helicopter to scan the area.
Officers are currently liaising with the missing mans family.
