Officers searching for missing seven-year-old Conley Thompson have found the body of a child on a construction site on Bank End Road in Worsbrough.

The body was found at approximately 8.30am. Formal identification of the body is yet to take place, however it is believed to be that of Conley.

His family have been informed and they are being supported by specialist officers.

Detective Inspector Victoria Short leading the investigation said: “We deployed our full resources with officers searching throughout the night to find Conley and we are deeply saddened by this tragic development.

“While it is early in the investigation, the death is being treated as unexplained and a post-mortem will take place in due course.

“Our thoughts remain with Conley’s family and friends at this very difficult time.”

Devastating circumstances. Prayers to the family. Regardless of the circumstances the parents are now paying the ultimate price!!!!!
And if people have nothing positive to say then maybe say nothing . If this had happened to me I could not live with myself so have some humanity and keep negative thoughts to yourselves . The poor mother will be pushed over the edge if she sees any of theses comments. No one is perfect my family mean the world to me and I could not survive without them and I'm sure this mother feels the same. We are not perfect and get it so wrong sometimes.
And the area to which they live, is a built up social area that is what most of the children do in the area.

Today it would be wonderful
To see you play and smile
But heaven lent you to this world
For just a little while
And in that short but precious time
You brought along much love
And all that love is with you now
In heaven up above.
Your leaving caused so many tears
And such a lot of pain
But God needed one more angel
So he took you back again.R.I.P conley hope you saw the flowers we gave you today
