Colum, 33, was reported missing at 12pm on Monday 27 August 2018. He was last seen at his home in Minton Place around four hours earlier.

Very sadly the body of a man was discovered in a wooded area nearby earlier today. Although his body is yet to be formally identified, it is believed to be Colum and his family have been informed. Our thoughts remain with them all.

His death is not being treated as suspicious. The coroner has been notified.
