HUMAN remains discovered in Milton Keynes last month have been confirmed as those of Stephen Keogh, who went missing four years ago.
Mr Keogh, 38, from Milton Keynes but with roots in Ireland, went missing from the Netherfield area on May 11, 2015.
Despite police searches and appeals from his family, no trace of Mr Keogh was found.
On January 21, Thames Valley Police received a report that a member of the public had discovered human remains on land close to the V4 Watling Street, Bletchley.
Officers attended and carried out a complex operation to remove the body from the site.
The body has now been identified as that of Mr Keogh. His family have been informed.
“Identification of a body located in Bletchley last month has taken place and determined this is Stephen Keogh, who has been missing for more than three years,” said Detective Chief Inspector Nick Glister, of Milton Keynes Force CID.
“Stephen’s death continues to be unexplained but is not currently being treated as suspicious.
“Our thoughts are with his family at this exceptionally difficult time.”
