Gardaí have uncovered a gun in the search for missing man Trevor Deely.
The 22-year-old disappeared after his office Christmas party in Dublin in the year 2000.
The Gardaí have been searching an area of derelict land in Chapelizod following a tip-off.
The gun was reportedly found yesterday, according to The Irish Times.
The last known sighting of Trevor Deely was captured by a CCTV camera at the junction of Haddington Road and Baggot Street on the night of December 8 at around 4am.
The CCTV footage shows a man dressed all in black following him.
It has not been confirmed if the gun is linked to Mr Deely's disappearance.
Gardaí will continue to search the site.
Teen Mom 2 star Jeremy Calvert has responded to fans who criticised his decision to photograph his three-year-old daughter holding a rifle.
Leah Messer’s ex-husband took to Instagram on Tuesday to share a picture of Adalynn clutching the large unloaded weapon.
The 27-year-old captioned the post: “She said daddy, lets go hunting and shoot a coyote…lol better watch out boys she wont miss lol haha (sic).”
While some of the reality star’s 306,000 followers defended the post, others accused him of being an attention seeker and of teaching his child potentially dangerous habits.
Jeremy has since deleted the image and replaced it with a message which details his stance on firearms.
It reads: “Okay to all you idiots, I was taught the correct way to handle a firearm at a very young age, and guess what so will my child.”
“I check every firearm before I put them up after shooting to make sure they r unloaded…So for all you people out there who seem to really think ur opinion matters and you hate guns I honestly don’t give a sh*t.”
“My child is PROTECTED while in my care clearly. And to all you that are against guns and don’t have them nor want them I hope no one ever tries to enter your home and bring harm to your family (sic).”
Adalynn's mother, Leah, has not yet responded to the posts.
Liam Payne is no stranger to causing a bit of trouble here and there but a recent snap has caused fury for many on Twitter.
The One Directioner was photographed holding a gun was with members of the reality show Duck Dynasty when the photo was taken and has angered many of his fans on Twitter who claim he is glamourising gun culture.
This is the second time the singer has been in the headlines this week as he took to Twitter just recently to deny that the nude photos circulating the internet were of him.
Khloe Kardashian has caused a bit of controversy with her latest Instagram snap. The reality star is seen swigging out of champagne-like bottle, while her new boyfriend French Montana sits next to her, holding a really big machine gun.
Considering gun control is a sensitive issue in the USA at the moment after the recent mass shooting in the University of California, which killed six people, Khloe could have chosen a less dramatic pose for Instagram.
Granted, it’s not a real gun – she was on a film set when the photo was taken – but glamorising the use of guns and alcohol isn’t really a good idea when she has so many young, impressionable fans.
We hope Khloe goes back to taking a good old fashioned selfie soon!
