Police began inquiries at the house last Monday and have stressed the inquiries do not relate to anyone currently living at the property.

A cordon was established while officers conducted their inquiries, which included the excavation of the property’s garden. The cordon has now been lifted and investigations concluded.

The current occupants were supported while police carried out their inquiries and will be supported throughout their return to the property.

Superintendent David Pester of GMP’s City of Manchester Division said: “We’d like to thank residents, particularly those living at the address, for their patience while we conducted our inquiries.

“I’m pleased to say those investigations have now concluded. A number of items have been recovered from the search. These will be taken away and assessed by forensic teams.

“I am aware of speculation surrounding this investigation. I want to make it absolutely clear that no human remains have been recovered during the forensic examination of the property.

“People in the area may notice a continuing police presence over the next couple of days while officers assist partner agencies with the current occupants’ move back into the property.

“We’re grateful for the support of all our partners within the community during this investigation.”
