A body thought to be that of a missing 15-year-old boy has been found, police have said.

Emmerson Thompson, from Northampton, had not been seen for three days.

He was reported missing at 2pm last Friday from his home.

The discovery of the body was made by members of the public at Weston Mill in the town.

In a statement, Detective Chief Inspector Mark Behan said: "Our thoughts are with Emmerson's family at this devastating time.

"I would like to thank the public for their help in the search for Emmerson, particularly those people who shared our appeal on social media sites."

A report will now be prepared for the coroner, Mr Behan added.

On Sunday, police said they were "very concerned" about the youngster.
