GARDAI searching for a 19-year-old missing from his home in Clare for almost a week have located a body.

Gardai in Ennis searching for Jack Dinan have located his body in a wooded location near the town this Monday, they said.

"His body has been removed from the scene and a post-mortem will take place tomorrow. Gardaí do not believe that his death is suspicious," said a spokesperson, adding that the family have requested privacy and no further information was available.

The garda press office had said Jack was believed to be armed and had asked the public not to approach him.

A major search was launched in an effort to find him.

The teenager's body was removed to University Hospital Limerick, where a post-mortem examination was due to take place.
