Mikaeel had been reported missing from his home in Ferry Gait Crescent on Thursday morning. It was announced that she had been arrested and charged on Saturday evening.

Mikaeel’s disappearance sparked a huge search, with hundreds of residents in the Muirhouse and Drylaw area joining in a frantic hunt while hundreds of calls were made to a dedicated phone line, after police said he may have got up and left his home alone.

However, their efforts proved to be in vain with the discovery of Mikaeel’s body around 30 miles away from his home, leaving the community reeling.
