( AFP ) - Police searching the former home of a man charged with murdering a teenage girl who disappeared from central Scotland 16 years ago have found a second body, they said Friday.
The remains were found at a house in the town of Margate, south-east England, where Peter Tobin, 61, used to live.
On Monday, the skeleton of 15-year-old Vicky Hamilton, who was last seen in 1991, was discovered at the house. Tobin, a former handyman, was charged with her murder and appeared before a judge in central Scotland on Thursday.
Vicky's remains were found during a search for another missing teenager, Dinah McNicol, 18, from the county of Essex, eastern England. She was last seen returning from a music festival, also in 1991.
On Friday, Assistant Chief Constable Peter Lowton of Essex Police told reporters that the height of the body as well as the clothing and jewellery found with it indicated it was McNicol's.
The body was found in the back garden close to the patio, he added, following a post-mortem examination.
