Mikaeel Kular Neighbours Shocked By News
The hundreds of people who joined the search for missing Mikaeel Kular are now coming to terms with the news they had all been dreading.
After the discovery of a body, people have been leaving flowers, teddies and candles near the three-year-old's home.
Shazia Chaudhry, 33, lives on Ferry Gait Crescent and came to look at the tributes with her 20-month-old son Zohaib.
She said the news had hit her hard because the two boys looked so alike.
She cried as she read the notes to her son, who she told me had earlier looked out of the window and said: "Baby gone."
Student Erin Anderson, 17, wept as she described how she "felt sick" when she found out the news on Twitter.
Shona Smith, 41, came to the crescent with her son Cain, eight, who wanted to leave two of his teddy bears for Mikaeel because he was "only young".
Ms Smith said: "I think it's a hard lesson in life but one that kids needs to understand - these things do happen."
But the Kulars' neighbours, who did not want to be named, said they had sent their three children to stay with relatives because they didn't want them to see everything going on.
Jackie Brownlee, 29, who lives opposite the Kulars' flat, told Sky News: "Everyone was hoping so much and now that hope's gone. We still can't believe it."
And that sentiment was reflected in the notes left with the tributes. One attached to a bunch of flowers just says: "Why??"
Brothers Aron and Tanay Ortanoglu brought their two teddies and wrote a note to Mikaeel saying: "Sleep well with the angels. Hope you like the teddies for you to cuddle in heaven."
Their mother Donna Ortanoglu, 44, said the boys, aged six and nine, had not been out of her sight since news of Mikaeel's disappearance broke.
She said: "I didn't want them to hear stories at school, I wanted them to see the truth."
But it is that truth that this devastated community is going to take a long time to recover from.
