Gardaí have confirmed that they are investigating the discovery of a body that was taken from the water at the Castletown River, Dundalk on Thursday afternoon.

The body was removed from the scene to the mortuary and a post-mortem will be carried out in due course.

Earlier in the week, Dundalk Sub Aqua Search and Recovery Unit carried out a search of the river in connection with the disappearance of Dundalk teenager Vincent Dillon who went missing from his home in the early hours of Sunday May 15.
