The 24-year-old had not been seen since 16 July when he disappeared from the Westgate area of the Co Antrim town.

His family had become increasingly concerned about his whereabouts - and police were due to stage a reconstruction of his last known movements on Wednesday.

Officers on Tuesday evening said the body of a man in his 20s had been found in Ballymoney.

They said that formal identification has not yet been carried out, however the body is believed to be missing person Michael Hanna, who was from the town.

Police added that at this stage the death is not being treated as suspicious.
