A TEENAGER whose disappeared after attending a rave in a disused quarry was found dead in dense woodland, a coroner said today.

An inquest was opened into the death of Frantisek Morris, known as Frankie, of Llandegfan, Anglesey, a graffiti artist who had been missing since May 2 and last seen at Pentir, near Bangor.

The 18-year-old's body was found on June 3 at Caerhun on the outskirts of Bangor after police were called by a member of the public.

Police identified him from clothing and documents.

Acting senior coroner for North West Wales Katie Sutherland at Caernarfon said a provisional cause of death had been given by Home Office pathologist Dr Brian Rodgers of "compression of the neck" due to hanging. 

She hoped to list a full inquest in September, the coroner told Frankie’s mother Alice at a hearing which lasted a few minutes.
