A decomposing body found in a makeshift grave in Princes Town last week has been identified as missing father Steve Hyacinth.

Thirty-nine-year-old Hyacinth of Woodpecker Lane, Pleasantville and Laltoo Trace, Penal, was last seen by his relatives on July 1. Hyacinth, also known as Ganzie told relatives he was going to meet a friend at St Joseph, San Fernando.

His car was subsequently found at the San Fernando General Hospital.
