Frantisek Morris Biography
Who is Frantisek Morris?
Frantisek “Frankie” Morris, 18, was last seen the next day, Sunday May 2, when he was caught on CCTV pushing his bicycle near the Vaynol Arms, Pentir.
Hundreds have joined the search, with volunteers using drones and dogs, along with many more details to share online.
Detectives in Wales investigating the mysterious disappearance of 18-year-old Frantisek ‘Frankie’ Morris on Saturday night arrested a man on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving.
They also arrested a man and a woman on suspicion of perverting the course of justice.
North Wales Police Chief Inspector Owain Llewelyn said: “After our appeal today, I can confirm that we have spoken to the cyclist in CCTV footage and that they are no longer part of our investigation.”
Frankie’s brother says the family, from Llandegfan, Anglesey, is “in distress.”
“Frankie is a bit of a homeless man, he goes out a few days and my dad knows nothing about him, but nothing for so long,” said Robin, describing his brother as “outgoing” and someone who likes to hike in the hills.
The teenager attended a party at the quarry above Waunfawr the night before his disappearance, and search and rescue teams have been scouring the Llanberis Mountains, trying to find him.
More than 5,000 people have joined a Facebook group to share information and organize searches, print posters and search for CCTV that could help reconstruct his whereabouts.
Chief Insp Llinos Davies said: ‘I would like to appeal directly to Frankie and I want him to know that our only concern is to know that he is safe and sound.
I urge Frankie or anyone who knows of his whereabouts to contact us. We will have to check on Frankie’s well-being, but his confidentiality and wishes will be respected.
“We remain concerned about Frankie and continue to use a considerable amount of resources from the police and partner agencies, which have been dedicated to finding Frankie for almost a week.
“We are working closely with the Frankie family to explore all possible lines of research at this difficult time. If you have any information on Frankie’s whereabouts, please contact us.
It was understood that search and rescue teams conducted dog searches in the area on Tuesday.
Anyone with information is encouraged to contact the police at 101.
In the days after his disappearance, Frankie’s family joined mountain rescue teams searching for quarries and slate mines, but his brother has now found CCTV of him pushing his bike past the pub in Pentir, miles away from the rave site.
The bike was also found by two walkers within walking distance of the pub.
Frankie’s family now believe that he left the rave on Sunday and had been walking in the hills for three to four hours, and was on his way to his house on Anglesey when he disappeared.
“Everyone was looking in the wrong place,” said his brother.
“Everyone is distraught, upset and worried, the possibilities of what could have happened, it is so out of place for him to do this.”
He added: “He is affecting me quite now emotionally and physically, I have been looking for him every day … and everyone I know, and do not even know, has been looking for him.”
North Wales police said they had received hundreds of calls from the public and information online as they continued to search for the teenager.
Det Ch Insp Lee Boycott urged everyone who had attended the rave to contact them with any information, photos or videos that could help in the search, and said they would not be prosecuted for attending the illegal event.
“I understand that people may be reluctant due to the fact that the rave was not an organized event, but I would like to assure you that we are only concerned with gathering as much information as possible about Frankie’s movements,” he said.

Detective Chief Inspector Lee Boycott said: ‘We are truly grateful to the community for the hundreds of phone calls and online reports that we have received in response to our previous appeals.
“As a result, we are looking at many different lines of research. I would like to appeal directly to anyone who has attended a rave at the disused quarry above Waunfawr on Saturday May 1st and has not yet shown up to do so.
‘I understand that people may be reluctant due to the fact that the rave was not an organized event, but I would like to assure you that we are only concerned with gathering as much information as possible about Frankie’s movements.
