EMMERDALE viewers were confused last night as police officers appeared to make a major gaffe as they informed Moira that a body has been found in the search for her son Adam.
The scrap metal merchant – who is played by actor Adam Thomas in the ITV soap – fled the village after escaping prison so his mum Moira wouldn't have to confess to killing Emma.
ITV The police delivered some devastating news to Moira
Emma had admitted to her crimes but the police refused to believe her version of events.
During Friday night's episode, the police came to the farm to ask her more questions about her son.
Fed up with the police, Moira snapped at DS Benton and told him she hadn't heard from him at all since he broke out of prison.
He then told her: "We've had a call from interpol, a body has been found. We don't have much information yet but we didn't want to worry you.
ITV Moira broke down at the thoughts she'd lost another child
"The body was found carrying a fake passport with Adam's picture in, but the body has not been formally identified.
"It was found in a harbour near Prague."
Moira broke down at the thoughts of having lost another child following Holly's death.
Despite the heartbreaking scene, viewers were more distracted by what the police had said.
Cain sent him on his way well prepared and told him to get on a boat to Amsterdam Victoria begged Adam not to go
Many pointed out the Prague is in the Czech Republic which is a land locked country.
Taking to Twitter, many questioned the script writers' geographical knowledge with one writing: "A harbour near Prague? Which harbour near the landlocked Czech Republic then?"
Wait, isn’t Prague really inland? Harbour? #emmerdale

There is a river port in Prague. But I don't see why #emmerdale police were so excited Adam left by boat? I seriously doubt that ship bypassed every other port in Europe to travel across at least one country via river to get to Prague port.

Prague??? I'm pretty sure the Czech Republic is a land-locked country. I've even been there. Did I hear incorrectly?? #emmerdale
