– Chief Superintendent Nick Adderley
While formal identification has not taken place we believe this is the body of missing Adam Pickup. His family has been informed. This is a heart-breaking time for Adam's family and our thoughts are with them.
Our initial indication is that that there are no suspicious circumstances surrounding his death, however speculation as to what may have happened will not give the answers Adam's family is looking for.
Police are questioning two men over the disappearance of a teenager. Adam Pickup, 17, vanished on a night out in Manchester.
