Following our exclusive interview with Regional Commander Sean McCarry the body of a Newcastle man who’d been missing for over a month in Amsterdam has been retrieved from a canal in the city.
Connor Murphy, who was 39-years-old, had been living in Amsterdam for three years.
In a social media post yesterday, a family friend said :
Day 34. Proved to the end of this nightmare. We didn’t get the post card we hoped for. Connor Murphy was recovered from the canal yesterday. Although official DNA won’t take place until Monday.
Thank you to everyone who has supported us the Murphy’s and The Dam Fam. For all the prayers, candles, masses, messages, phone calls, visits likes and shares. For your generosity. All money donated will go towards those charities that have helped us and gave us hope and encouragement when we felt there was none.
We got our miracle. We got our son, brother, brother-in law, uncle, best man, cousin and friend back.
We as a family are going to take time together to process this. We thank you for your privacy at this time.
When we get more details. I will let you all know.
Love from The Murphy’s and the Dam Fam
His family had launched several appeals, after he went missing after visiting a friend in the Nieuwmarkt area on Saturday 12 January.
