The Irish police - Gardai - made the grim discovery in the property outside the quiet village of Lucan in Dublin on Thursday afternoon following extensive searches to look for the young woman.

Dr Marie Cassidy is expected to be attending the scene and garda are conducting searches.

A first year student at Confey Community College, Ana was described as a "particularly striking teenager" who was well known within her school and local community.

Gardai are probing if this person was with the schoolgirl in St Catherine's Park, Lucan, when she was last seen alive.

Garda Síochána launched the murder inquiry after a postmortem on Friday morning to determine the cause of death. However, Garda sources said Ana had been beaten to death.

Anyone with information is being asked to contact Lucan Garda Station on 01-666-7300 or Garda Confidential Line on 1800-666-111.

He added Ana's family had reported her missing at about 8pm on Monday, just three hours after she left their home at Newtown Park, Leixlip, and failed to return. When she was not contactable, her parents went to the local garda station nearly immediately.

Later that evening Supt John Gordon released a statement saying that a body was discovered in a "disused, vacant farmhouse on the Clonee Road in Lucan".

"As you can imagine at this time (her family) are receiving a lot of support from An Garda Siochana but they are extremely distressed and they are also looking for the public assistance, and privacy at this time as well".

Gardaí have appealed for anyone with information to come forward.

Gardai have been searching for the missing teen since Monday.

"They have another child in that house as well, so of course they have to be very careful around that".

Clonee Road remains closed as a forensic examination of the crime scene continues.
