GLASGOW, Scotland (CelebrityAccess) Scott Hutchinson, 36, founder of Scottish band Frightened Rabbit, has been found dead after going missing.
Scotland police officials said they found Hutchison’s body late Thursday night at Glasgow’s Port Edgar, between the Forth Road Bridge and Queensferry Crossing.
Hutchison was reported missing by Scottish police and the members of Frightened Rabbit after he was last seen leaving his hotel in South Queensferry at 1 AM on May 9th.
His bandmate and brother Grant posted a notice on his Instagram account asking the public’s help in locating Scott.
His family issued the following statement:
“As a family, we are utterly devastated with the tragic loss of our beloved Scott. Despite his disappearance, and the recent concerns over his mental health, we had all remained positive and hopeful that he would walk back through the door, having taken some time away to compose himself.
“Scott, like many artists, wore his heart on his sleeve and that was evident in the lyrics of his music and the content of many of his social media posts. He was passionate, articulate and charismatic, as well as being one of the funniest and kindest people we knew. Friends and family would all agree that he had a brilliant sense of humour and was a great person to be around.
“Depression is a horrendous illness that does not give you any alert or indication as to when it will take hold of you. Scott battled bravely with his own issues for many years and we are immensely proud of him for being so open with his struggles. His willingness to discuss these matters in the public domain undoubtedly raised awareness of mental health issues and gave others confidence and belief to discuss their own issues.”
