Two men have been charged with the murder and disappearance of Chloe Mitchell, who went missing in Northern Ireland.

Detectives from the Police Service of Northern Ireland (PSNI) have charged a 26-year-old man with murder and a 34-year-old man with aiding offenders.

Both men are due to appear in Ballymena Magistrates Court on Monday morning.

Ms Mitchell, 21, was last seen on CCTV in the early hours of Saturday June 3 in Ballymena town centre.

Detectives investigating Ms Mitchell’s disappearance launched a murder inquiry on Sunday after suspected human remains were found in Ballymena.

Forensic officers attended a flat in the James Street area of ​​Ballymena on Sunday evening. The property had been cordoned off by police earlier in the week.

The discovery came after extensive searches in Ballymena in recent days.

Members of the Community Rescue Service (CRS) assisted the police in the major search operation in Ballymena.

In a statement on Sunday evening, the volunteer-based organization said: “CRS would like to thank the people of Ballymena, those who live and work in the Harryville area and especially Chloe’s family and friends for their outstanding support during our operations.”
