Graham Roskell's daughter has written a message on Facebook to thank the public for helping to search for her father.
Going on Facebook the same day you have found out your Dad has died isn't normally what someone does - but knowing that there are nearly 6000 people wishing us well, I had to come on and thank you ALL for your amazing support. I don't know most of you, but the last 12 days of not knowing have been hell.
Your kind words, support and amazing spirit as a community have pulled us through as a family and will continue to do so during this desperately difficult time. I really can't thank you enough for everything you all did to try and find our Dad. He always loved the woods and now he can be at peace, not having to suffer anymore. As a family, we really are eternally grateful. Thank you x
