The remains were discovered on 25 March in an area off Scholes Lane, Scholes, and a forensic post mortem was carried out.

Detective Superintendent Simon Atkinson, from West Yorkshire Police’s Homicide and Major Enquiry Team, said: “Following DNA tests we have confirmed remains found in March of this year were those of Alan Holt.

“We have been in contact with Mr Holt’s family since the discovery of the remains earlier this year and specially trained officers are continuing to support the family at this difficult time.

“Following a forensic post mortem, we do not believe there are any suspicious circumstances and a file will now be passed to the coroner.”

Alan Holt was 40-years-old when he was reported missing from his home in Dalton, Huddersfield.
