HUMAN remains found in a field have been confirmed as those of missing Stamford man Robert Carroll.
A Cambridgeshire Police spokesman said dental records had been used to identify the remains.
The grisly discovery was made by a dog walker just after 2pm on Monday - in a dyke, just outside Pilsgate, near Stamford.
Forty-year-old Mr Carroll went missing from his home in Stamford on February 20, 2006.
The death is not being treated as suspicious.
