Anthony Lewis, 64, from Cheshire was first reported missing on July 5 2012.
His abandoned car was located in Snowdonia a week later sparking a frantic police search to find him but Anthony could not be found.
His failure to contact his family was described as "totally out of character" by cops searching for him.
Now, over a decade later, Anthony's body has been discovered.
A member of the public found human remains in woodland near the village of Dolgarrog on September 25.
