A body has been found in the search for a Welsh teenager who went missing over a month ago.

Frantisek Morris, known as Frankie, was last seen walking in Pentir, near Bangor in North Wales, at about 1.20pm on Sunday May 2.

Detective Chief Inspector Lee Boycott said: ‘Our deepest, heartfelt sympathies go to Frankie’s family and friends at this very difficult time.’

Thousands of people were involved in the search to find Frankie, from Anglesea, with ravers urged to come forward with any information.

Frankie’s mum Alice had pleaded for help on the Find Frankie Morris Facebook page, saying she feared something bad may have happened to him.

At a press conference last week, she said he was in an ‘optimistic mood’ when they last spoke shortly before his disappearance, telling her about his plans to buy a van and go travelling.

She said: ‘He enjoyed the outdoors, snowboarding in winter in the Czech Republic.

‘He loved to be with his friends. He’s very smart and manually skilled. He’s quite a talented artist. He used to do graffiti all over my home town.

‘He is someone with a good heart.’

Last month, officers investigating the case arrested a man on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving and a man and a woman on suspicion of perverting the course of justice, but they were later released and eliminated from the inquiry.
