Police looking for missing Newtown man, Sean Miller, have found a body.

A Dyfed-Powys Police spokeswoman said: “It is with sadness that Dyfed-Powys Police can confirm a body has been found during the search for missing Sean Miller, from Newtown. Our thoughts are with his family, who have been informed of the development. They are being supported by specially trained officers at this time.

“HM Coroner is aware; formal identification has not yet taken place.”

Sean Miller, 22-years-old, had been missing since February 2, and yesterday his family issued a plea for information as police issued new CCTV images in an effort to trace his last movements.

He had been on a night out with friends in Newtown when he disappeared, last seen heading in the direction of his mother's house near Trehafren Fields.

A multi-agency search of riverbanks in Newtown and further downriver had taken place over a number of weeks.
