A dad-to-be who vanished four months ago has been found dead in a field close to his home. Wayne Jeffs, 29, was last seen by his pregnant girlfriend Carla Holbrook when he suddenly “vanished off the face of the earth” after he left their home to go to the shops.
There was no trace of him until Saturday when a dog walker found his body in a field near to his home – in the same clothes he was wearing when he went missing. His body was so badly decomposed that police have been unable to formally identify him or identify a cause of death.
Carla, 30, said: “I saw a post on Facebook saying that a body had been found close to where we live. I rang the police and they asked if I was at home and if they could come round. I knew then … I’m glad I got to spend six years with him and have lots of memories and good times I can cherish. It just hurts I can never make any more with him.”
