A 14yr old Noah Donohoe who was declared missing about a week ago, was said to be be seen last near Shore Road in north Belfast.
In a statement, his family said: “He was very special. It is very hard to do justice or honour the extraordinary relationship Noah and his mummy shared.”
The Donohoe family in a statement on Sunday expressed their “heartfelt gratitude for the support, outpouring of love, and empathy” they received.
“From walking with us, both physically and spiritually, to feeling our pain, we recognise that everyone has lost Noah,” said the family.
“Noah’s mummy always told him that he would change the world,” they said.
“He was very special. It is very hard to do justice or honour the extraordinary relationship Noah and his mummy shared. In his 14 years his mummy got so much from their special bond, he taught his mummy so much. They were each other’s world.”
One body believed to be that of Noah Donohoe was found in a storm drain.
We are deeply saddened to hear of the passing of Noah Donohoe.
Our thoughts are with his family and friends, as well as those whose lives he touched within the rugby community, at this incredibly difficult time 💙 pic.twitter.com/WMFlYmtfJV
