Police discover body in search for missing teenager, 18, in overgrown garden of his own home TWO MONTHS after he was reported missing
A decomposed body has been found in the back garden of the home of a public schoolboy who went missing ten weeks ago.
Police officers searching for Miller Redpath, 18, found the corpse, which is yet to be identified, lying in the 'overgrown' yard at the rear of his family's house.
Suffolk police are yet to confirm if it was the first time they had searched the house.
The public schoolboy, who was waiting on his A-Level results, was last seen alive when his widowed mother Anastasia Miller went to wake him early on August 13, but found him 'grumpy' and left him in bed.
She has been searching for her son ever since, issuing a string of public appeals on local radio and in newspapers.
Ms Miller, an accountant who runs a real estate agency in Eastern Europe, also distributed posters declaring her son missing.
Police confirmed that a body was found at around 1.10pm on Thursday in the 'overgrown rear garden' at the house where he lived with his mother in Wenhaston near Southwold, Suffolk.
The death is being treated as unexplained by police who have cordoned off the the garden while it is examined by scenes of crimes officers, making a forensic search for clues.
