Police searching for a missing 82 year-old were called to St Andrews Dock following the discovery of a body.

Although formal identification has not yet been made it's believed to be that of Donald Francis, who went missing from his home on Linnaeus Street yesterday morning. The circumstances of his death are not thought to be suspicious.

Police have thanked all the search teams for their efforts and for the support of the public during their searches. They have not been able to find the next of kin of Mr Francis and are asking if anyone can help them locate any family, believed to originate in the Portsmouth area.
