A senior officer investigating the disappearance of young teenager Ciaran Sweeney has thanked members of the public in helping in the search.
In a statement released today, Ch Insp Paul Winter spoke of his sadness at the discover of the young Top Gear fan's body.
This is a case that has deeply affected both the Mansfield and the wider Nottinghamshire community.
On behalf of the force I’d like to thank the public for all of their help with the search for Ciaran.
The response to our appeals for information was overwhelming and the sight of so many posters in people’s windows and cars was a clear demonstration of a community united by the desire to find him.
I am only sorry that it has had such a tragic ending.
