Written by Hitmix News on 5 June 2021
A body has been found in the month-long search for a teenager who went missing after going to a rave, police have said.
Frantisek Morris, known as Frankie, was last seen walking in Pentir, near Bangor in Gwynedd, north Wales, at about 1.20pm on Sunday 2 May.
The 18-year-old, from Llandegfan in Anglesey, had been at a rave in Waunfawr, near Snowdonia National Park, the night before he disappeared.

Police had appealed for anyone at the party to come forward to help with their inquiries.
On Thursday afternoon a body was found in dense woodland near Caerhun, on the outskirts of Bangor, a police spokesman said.
No formal identification has taken place yet but the coroner has been informed.
Mr Morris’s family have also been told and a post-mortem examination is due to take place on Friday.
His mother, Alice Morris, made a heartfelt plea in late May for anybody who had seen her “beautiful son” to come forward.
She said his disappearance was “totally out of character”.

Last month, detectives arrested a man on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving, and a man and a woman on suspicion of perverting the cause of justice.
They were later released and eliminated from the inquiry.
Detective Chief Inspector Lee Boycott said: “Our deepest, heartfelt sympathies go to Frankie’s family and friends at this very difficult time.”
