A man has been found guilty of murdering 15-year-old Paige Chivers despite her body having never been found.
Robert Ewing, 60, was unanimously convicted by a jury at Preston Crown Court.
His co-defendant Gareth Dewhurst, 46, was found guilty of helping dispose of her body. Both men were also convicted of perverting the course of justice.
Paige went missing in Blackpool in 2007 after a row with her father about missing money. It is believed she fell victim to a gang of paedophile gangs in the area.
The court heard Ewing developed an "inappropriate sexual interest" in Paige before beating her to death. Her blood was later found in his flat.
And Ewing's friend Dewhurst was overheard saying he used his car to dump the teenager's body.
The case echoes that of that of 14-year-old Charlotte Downes, who disappeared from the Lancashire seaside resort in 2003. She has also never been found.
Ewing and Dewhurst will be sentenced on July 28.
