A body has been found in the search for a teenager who went missing after attending a rave, police said.

Frantisek Morris, known as Frankie, was last seen pushing his bike in Pentir, near Bangor, in Gwynedd, North Wales, at about 1.20pm on Sunday May 2 – with the bike found nearby a week later.

The 18-year-old attended a rave at a disused quarry in Waunfawr, near Snowdonia National Park, the night before his disappearance.

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

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.
