The body of a Brazilian man who was reported missing from Dublin earlier this month has been found.

Caique Trindade De Oliveria, 24, went missing from Clondalkin on 6 March.

Gardaí made several appeals for information, but confirmed this morning that his body was recovered by the Garda Water Unit yesterday in the Clondalkin area.

It had been reported that Mr De Oliveria's mother travelled to Ireland from Brazil to help in the search for him.

Gardaí have thanked volunteers and search agencies, as well as the media, for their help.
