Police have found the remains of missing teenager Cayleb Hough in a mineshaft in a national park, north-east of Melbourne.
Cayleb’s remains were found in the Lerderberg State Park in Bacchus Marsh on March 10 and has been formally identified.
The death is being treated as suspicious by Police.
With the assistance of the SES, detectives from the Missing Persons Squad will today search the area for clues into the teenager’s death.
Cayleb was last seen alive near The Crescent, Highett, in the early hours of December 20. In January, police found the car he was seen travelling in in the car park of a Southbank entertainment complex. The car remains in police possession as the investigation continues.
Detective Senior Sergeant Craig Rhodes from the Missing Persons Squad, said Cayleb’s family deserved answers.
“We are particularly keen to speak to anyone who may have seen any suspicious activity in the Lerderderg State Park since December 20 last year,” he said. “Someone out there knows who is responsible for Cayleb’s death and we are appealing for them to come forward and contact police.”
