The family of a young man missing for more than a month have been told by police of the discovery of a man's body. Kyle Hayman, 22, who was last seen at 11am on May 18, left a property in Waterlooville saying he was going for a walk.

Detectives from Hampshire Constabulary made public appeals for sightings and said they had the "utmost concern" for him. Now it's emerged that a body was found in woodland near Pigeon House Lane, Southwick, at around 11.50am yesterday.

The body has not yet been formally identified, but relatives of Mr Hayman have been informed about the discovery. The death is not being treated as suspicious.

Police appeal to identify Waterlooville caller

Police are appealing for help to identify a woman who made a call to police last night reporting an assault.

The woman was dropped off by a white van in Shaftesbury Avenue, Waterlooville in a distressed state around 8.45pm on yesterday.

It's believed the woman was having an argument with a man driving the van.

She's described as:

  • White
  • Slim build
  • In her 20s
  • Long dark hair in a ponytail
  • Wearing wedge trainers, skinny blue jeans and a white t-shirt

She approached two teenage girls walking along the same road and asked them if she could borrow their phone to call the police. The woman had left the area on police arrival.

It is not clear whether the woman got back in the van or ran away on foot.

Anyone with information should call police on 101.
