The PSNI has confirmed human remains were found inside the car discovered in Lough Erne earlier this week.
Michael “Tony” Lynch was last seen in Clones in January 2002.
Searches of lakes in the area had been ongoing in recent months as part of a renewed investigation into his disappearance.
It was hoped his car may be located.
The PSNI say they are liaising with Gardaí as part of the investigation.
