Police in Scotland have found the body of a man believed to be Frightened Rabbit singer Scott Hutchison, who disappeared early Wednesday morning. The body was found at Port Edgar marina, on the banks of the Firth of Forth just west of Edinburgh; it has not yet been identified but Hutchison's family has been informed, BBC News reports. The 36-year-old musician was last seen leaving the Dakota Hotel in South Queensferry at about 1 a.m. Wednesday, two hours after he had tweeted: "Be so good to everyone you love. It's not a given. I'm so annoyed that it's not. I didn't live by that standard and it kills me. Please, hug your loved ones." And then: "I'm away now. Thanks."

Hutchison formed Frightened Rabbit with his brother Grant, and they released the first of their five albums in 2006. In a press conference Thursday, his family had said he was in a "very fragile state" recently and asked that he please "just come home."
