A body has been found during searches for a Newcastle man who’d been missing for over a month in Amsterdam.

39 year old Connor Murphy's family launched several appeals, after he went missing after visiting a friend in the Nieuwmarkt area on Saturday the 12th of January.

Posting on the Facebook page called #letsfindmurph, a family member said:

"Day 34 Proved to the end of the  nightmare for the family  They didn’t get the post card they 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"
