GARDAÍ INVESTIGATING the disappearance of a Latvian man from his home in Co Galway have discovered a body. Juris Buls, 30, has been missing since 7 July.

The remains, which have not yet been identified, were discovered in a wooded area near the Glenamaddy to Creggs Road in Gortnadeeve East yesterday evening.

The scene has been preserved for a technical examination and a post-mortem is due to be held today.

A 35-year-old man who was being questioned in connection with Buls’ disappearance was brought before a special sitting of Tuam District Court this morning and charged with withholding information.

Sergejs Krauze, originally from Latvia but with an address in Glenamaddy, Co Galway, was remanded in custody pending another court appearance on Tuesday, RTÉ reports.
