A high risk missing person is believed to have been found dead in a country park in North Belfast, police said.

The family of Jonathan Tipping, 31, have been informed of the discovery at Cavehill Country Park shortly after midday today, although formal identification has yet to take place.

Mr Tipping, from the Cavehill Road, was last seen on Wednesday evening.
