The search for an unidentified body buried in forestry at Nant-y-Ffrith on the outskirts of Bwlchgwyn near Wrexham has been suspended.
Detectives hoping more information from the public may help them identify a more specific location in the large expanse of forestry.
The search, which started on the 19th May, involved specialist ‘cadaver’ Police Dogs, Police search team specialists & forensic experts.
Despite our best efforts we have to date been unsuccessful in locating any human remains and so the search has been suspended pending further information and intelligence from the public.
The investigation however continues and we are now asking the public to help us identify who the unidentified man may be. From enquiries conducted we believe the person buried is an adult male from the Wrexham area whose first name is Nathan or Michael.
Do you know a Nathan or Michael from the Wrexham area who you’ve had no contact with or not seen in the last five years? If so please call our investigation team and help us piece this together.
