A man and a woman have been arrested on suspicion of the murder of William McCormick.

The 26-year-old man and 21-year-old woman were arrested in the Comber area on Thursday morning.

They are currently being questioned by detectives in Musgrave Serious Crime Suite.

The man and woman arrested were previously arrested on suspicion of murder on June 3 and were released on bail pending further enquiries.

Mr McCormick's body was discovered in Magherascouse Lough, Ballygowan, by specialist divers on Tuesday afternoon.

Police are awaiting the results of a post-mortem to determine his exact cause of death.

Mr McCormick, also known as Pat, was last seen walking down Castle Street, in Comber, at around 10.45pm on Thursday May 30.

The father-of-four's disappearance was initially treated as a missing persons case, but it was quickly changed to a murder inquiry after police reviewed the evidence.
