Human remains found in Melbourne’s south-east on Wednesday are believed to be those of a 26-year-old Oakleigh South man who went missing last month, according to Victoria Police.
Detectives from the missing persons squad discovered the body in a semi-rural area near Nixon Road at Lysterfield about 1.30 pm on Wednesday.
Police revealed on Thursday evening they believe the body was of a man who was last seen on May 11 and had been reported as missing, but they were yet to formally identify him. The man’s death is being treated as suspicious.
Detectives from the Missing Persons Squad were investigating after a body was located in Lysterfield yesterday.
