The body was discovered in the building on Clonee Road in Lucan at around 1pm on Thursday and the scene was sealed off.

Her family had reported her missing at Leixlip Garda Station at around 8pm that day after they became concerned for her safety.

The news comes after the teenager went missing from St Catherine's Park on Monday at approximately 5:30pm.

Later that evening Supt John Gordon released a statement saying that a body was discovered in a "disused, vacant farmhouse on the Clonee Road in Lucan".

He added: "Anybody who was here, anybody who knows anything at all about Ana or about what happened here or any information they may have, we would ask that they pass it to us".

A first-year student at Confey Community College, Ana was described as a "striking teenager", who was well-known within her school and local community.

'It's quiet here and it's a popular park, we're not sure how this could have happened'. "Our deepest sympathy to Anastasia's family and friends". The 200 acre site, which was searched by gardai for three days, stretches from Lucan to Leixlip and the nearby Clonee area.

A post-mortem examination has taken place.

A full investigation is ongoing and the technical bureau is now at the site.

Supt Gordon said Ana's family are "receiving a lot of support from An Garda Siochana but they are extremely distressed".

'They also want the public's assistance and privacy as well as they have another child in the house so we have to be careful around that'.
