As police search for his missing girlfriend, a BRITISH youngster is believed to have been brutally killed and left in a woodland.

Woramet Ben Taota, 16, and Yam, 16, went on a motorbike trip in Thailand on the evening of May 6, but neither of them returned.

On Sunday morning, local authorities received word that the adolescent, known as Ben to his pals, had been discovered dead in a grove in the Mae Tha district in Lampang province.

Ben, a motocross enthusiast, was found laying near to a bush, his head and face soaked in blood from several head wounds.

Officers discovered some of his things, including a smartphone charger, ID card, and bank card, but his phone and cash were not discovered.

Police believe he was robbed in exchange for the device.

They also assume Ben was murdered somewhere and discarded in the woods since his bones were found with no evidence of struggle.

His 16-year-old female companion is still missing, and authorities are looking for her.

Police Colonel Sittisak Singtongla, superintendent of the Mae Tha police, said: “The station received a notification at 10:15am that a deceased person was found in the undergrowth.”

The investigating team went to the area and found the victim with blood stains all over his face.

The face and head were found to have been beaten with a hard object and there was also a deep wound in his face.

“She is a key figure in this case since she is the last person to see him alive.”

Officers interviewed Ben’s mother, Ooy Taota, but his British father’s name has not been revealed.

Ooy told police that her son had said goodbye to her on Saturday evening and said he was “going to work with friends” but he did not give any more details to her.

Police Colonel Sittisak added: “We have not yet finalized the issue.

“It is still unclear whether it was a robbery, because the phone and cash of the deceased were not found, but we still cannot rule out other issues.”
