The teenager’s family have been informed and grieving mother Mandy Hunter said on Facebook: ‘Its bad news. Fireun’s body has been found.

She added, in response to messages of condolence: ‘He was a very mature and sensible young man. It makes no sense.’

Paying tribute to the teenager on Facebook, one person wrote: ‘So sad. Poor boy. Thinking of family and friends.’ 

Another said: ‘How very sad another young life away to soon. Thinking of everyone and the community.’
