Police are investigating the death of a Leicestershire man who has been found dead in the sea off the coast of Skegness.
Dean Greenwood was discovered 4.5 miles out to sea on August 20. He is believed to have got onto the beach next to the Bar Rumba pub on Roman Bank in Ingoldmells at around 1am a week before his body was found.
"We are appealing to anyone who was in the area of the beach between Ingoldmells Point and Vickers Points between half past midnight and 7am that Wednesday.
"Did you meet Dean or do you recall seeing a single man walking around the beach area?
"Dean's mobile phone was found on a bench nearby by a man who later spoke to his family about returning it. We haven't yet traced this man so would also appeal to him to contact us".

Despite 68% of people in the West Midlands finding that autumn walks help to combat winter blues, 42% admit to not going on enough walks during the autumn months with just over a third (34%) claiming it’s because they rarely get the chance to go on a stroll.
