The body of Anastasia Kriegel was discovered at a derelict house

Fourteen-year-old Anastasia Kriegel has been missing from home since Monday.

The body of Anastasia Kriegel was discovered by a garda search team 1km from where she was last seen on Monday at St Catherine's Park in Lucan.

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

He called on anyone with information to contact Lucan Garda Station on 01-666-7300 or Garda Confidential Line on 1800-666-111. "We are at this time treating the death as suspicious".

Supt Gordon said Ana's family are "receiving a lot of support from An Garda Siochana but they are extremely distressed".

However a murder investigation is underway and gardai are appealing to anyone with information to come forward.

Murder Investigation Launched Following Discovery Of Teenager's Body

Kriegel was a first year student in Confey secondary school, a co-ed Community College in Leixlip, County Kildare.

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

"She was a particularly striking girl; quite tall for her age and very well known in the locality because of that", Supt Gordon said. Not communicating with her family was out of character entirely.

The 200-acre site, which was searched by gardai for three days, stretches from Lucan to Leixlip and the nearby Clonee area.

The National Bureau of Crime Investigation, the force's serious crimes squad, was also aiding the investigation.

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