One body found in a forest late last month is that of missing diplomat Richard Morris, police have confirmed.

The 52-year-old former ambassador to Nepal was last seen running in an area near his home in Bentley, Hampshire, on May 6th.

After he was reported missing, several weeks of search led to the discovery of a body in Alice Holt Forest on August 31st.


Hampshire Police said formal identification procedures had been completed, with Mr Morris’s family informed and supported by specialist officers.

A statement in honor of Mr. Morris was released Wednesday by force on behalf of his family.

It read: “From the European childhood holidays through an American university scholarship for the ambassador to Nepal, Richard wanted to travel.

Described as funny, kind and smart by his diplomatic colleagues, he worked for the FCO with professionalism and integrity for almost 30 years.

“His sensitivity and kindness to those around him gave him respect wherever he went, evidenced by the messages of love, friendship and support we have received from around the world.

Richard was always a runner, happily describing himself as “more of an enthusiastic weekend track runner than a podium finisher.”

“However, he had completed five marathons on four continents, most recently in Nepal, where he raised money for Changing Faces – the UK charity he was responsible for.

“But above all, Richard was a family man. A loving and loyal husband, father, son and brother. He showed us the world but he was our world and we are devastated by his loss.

“We would like to take this opportunity to thank all the organizations and individuals who have supported us in recent months.”

Mr Morris left for jogging from his home at 10.30am on May 6 and was last seen running on Islington Street in nearby Alton.

At the time of the discovery of his body, police said they were not treating the death as suspicious.

On Wednesday, Hampshire Police thanked those who had assisted in the search.

Mr Morris was ambassador to Nepal between 2015 and November 2019 and accompanied the Duke of Sussex during his 2016 tour of the country.

Prior to that he was the head of the Pacific department at the Foreign Office and the Commonwealth and has held senior diplomatic posts including in Australia and Mexico.
