Police searching for the body of Moors murder victim Keith Bennett yesterday deployed a drone as they continued to investigate a report that the skeletal remains of a child had been found.

Forensics teams have been at an isolated spot on Saddleworth Moor since Friday morning after the Daily Mail revealed how a crime author had made the astonishing discovery of what experts believe is a child’s upper jaw. Last night police said they were going to continue searching the spot ‘for the foreseeable time’ – but said ‘no identifiable human remains’ had been found.

Keith is the only victim out of the five murdered by Ian Brady and Myra Hindley around Manchester in the 1960s whose remains have not been located. The dig began after author Russell Edwards assembled a team of experts.

Keith’s 66-year-old brother Alan said there were ‘hundreds of thoughts running through my mind’.

He added: ‘I’m not saying there is nothing there, what I will say is that I, and many others are confused, to say the very least.’ Mr Bennett said he believed Keith’s remains would not be found at the site being excavated – but ‘nobody can rule anything else out’.
