Two men arrested on suspicion of murdering a missing Co Down man have been released without charge.

William "Pat" McCormick was last seen walking along Castle Street in Comber at around 10.45pm on May 30, and police believe the 55-year-old has been murdered.

Detectives from the PSNI's major investigation team detained a 20-year-old man in Moneyreagh and a 32-year-old man in Ballygowan earlier on Friday.

They were later released on bail pending further police inquiries.

Searches were also carried out in Moneyreagh and Ballygowan on Friday, involving officers using specialist victim recovery dogs and an underwater team.
