Friends of Lisburn man Mervyn Craig have set up a fundraising page to help with the cost of his funeral arrangements.
A ‘Go Fund Me’ page was set up by members of the community of Wigan and has so far raised £179.
On the page the organiser posted, “We want to offer help and support to the family of 46-year-old Irishman Mervyn Craig who our community of Wigan have took into our hearts.
“We are wanting to raise funds in order to help with his funeral or any other costs the family may endure.
R.I.P. Mervyn you were a much loved man by many! X”
Mr Craig went missing some weeks ago.
His body was recovered in Wallgate.
