He continued and said, "I need to know the movements of Nathan last night between 5.30pm and 11.30pm. Did you see him? Was he in the company of anyone else? Did you see anything or anyone acting suspiciously in the area of the tow path from Legahory Court to Lake Road area of Craigavon?

“We are also investigating another incident at a house in the Legahory Court area of Craigavon. Whilst we cannot get into specific details of this incident we are also appealing to anyone who witnessed anyone acting in a suspicious manner in this area late last night to contact police."
