A body has been recovered in Lough Erne by police searching for a man missing for more than two months.

A major search operation has been continuing for 23-year-old Kieran McAree who has been missing since December 17, 2014.

Police said the body was found at Round 'O' in Enniskillen on Wednesday afternoon shortly before 12.44pm.

A formal identification process is to take place, however the family of missing Monaghan man Kieran McAree have been informed.

Kieran, from just across the Tyrone border in Emyvale, Co Monaghan, was last seen in the Henry Street area of Enniskillen

Volunteers from both sides of the border have come together- even on Christmas day - to search for the young man who was spotted entering Lough Erne after abandoning his Volkswagen Golf car.

Some of his clothing was later recovered at the scene.
