“Our thoughts and sympathies are with Noah’s family and we are continuing to provide support to them at this very difficult and heat-breaking time.

“It is disappointing that I again need to comment about people circulating a number rumours about Noah’s disappearance which are completely without foundation. This type of commentary and rumour is distressing for Noah’s family and unhelpful.
