A body has been found by police searching for missing Belfast teenager Noah Donohoe.
Police believe the body found in North Belfast at around 9.45am on Saturday 27 June is that of the missing 14-year-old, who has not been seen since the evening of 21 June.
Officers said they are continuing to provide support to his family and they have appealed to the public to refrain from speculation.
On Friday 26 June, officers found a bag containing the teenager’s laptop, which was examined by specialist officers.
The discovery came after a member of the public responded to a specific appeal by police for help to find the bag. Superintendent Muir Clark described the discovery of the bag as “significant”.

We know everyone is suffering under the Tories - but the Canary is a vital weapon in our fight back, and we need your support
The Canary Workers’ Co-op knows life is hard. The Tories are waging a class war against us we’re all having to fight. But like trade unions and community organising, truly independent working-class media is a vital weapon in our armoury.
The Canary doesn’t have the budget of the corporate media. In fact, our income is over 1,000 times less than the Guardian’s. What we do have is a radical agenda that disrupts power and amplifies marginalised communities. But we can only do this with our readers’ support.
So please, help us continue to spread messages of resistance and hope. Even the smallest donation would mean the world to us.
