DETECTIVES have reiterated their commitment to finding the killer who murdered a Bonhill teen 25 years ago. 

14-year-old Caroline Glachan's body was found in the River Leven after she had been attacked 25 years ago today. 

The young Our Lady and St Patrick’s pupil had been found on the morning of August 25, 1996 after having spent time with her best friends, Joanne Menzies, the following night. 

Caroline then left to meet her boyfriend at around midnight, with police believing that she had been followed by a stranger along the riverbank.

The search for Caroline's killer was restarted in 2016, with detectives hoping that advances in DNA technology would help with the search.

Detective Chief Inspector Stuart Grainger, said: “Our thoughts remain with Caroline’s family and friends on the 25th anniversary of her death.

“Caroline was only 14 at the time and Police Scotland continue to investigate the circumstances surrounding her murder.

“I would like to stress to the public that we have a dedicated team of officers working on this inquiry and I would continue to ask anyone who may have information surrounding this to come forward and speak to officers.

“We are committed to identifying whoever was responsible for Caroline’s murder and are working on bringing those responsible to justice.

“I would appeal to anyone who has not been seen by the inquiry team or has any information that could assist with our investigation, no matter how small, to make contact with police.

“It has been 25 years since Caroline’s murder and we are determined to give the Glachan family the answers they deserve.”
