Police from Cheshire have said they're no longer looking for 83-year-old Roy Tomlinson after the body of a man was discovered in the outbuilding of a house in Wellington Road, Nantwich this morning.
A police spokesperson said:
"The man was pronounced dead at the scene. The description and clothing of the deceased matches that of missing man Roy Tomlinson although formal identification has not yet taken place. His family have been made aware.
"A post mortem will take place in due course. There do not appear to be any suspicious circumstances surrounding the death and a file will prepared for the coroner.
"We would like to thank the media and members of the public for their assistance in publicising this appeal."
Cheshire Police are still trying to find an elderly man reported missing in Nantwich.
Roy Tomlinson, aged 83, was reported missing shortly before 5pm yesterday from the Shrewbridge Road area of Nantwich.
Officers are becoming increasingly concerned for Roy, who has dementia and can become confused.
Enquiries are ongoing in the local area and anyone with any information is urged to get in touch. He also has links to the Crewe area and residents are asked to check their sheds or gardens.
Roy spent much of his time in Liverpool as a younger man and officers are now considering the possibility that he may have travelled to the Merseyside area.
Roy is described as 5’10” tall with grey receding hair. He was last seen wearing a grey jumper, jeans and black or brown shoes. It is thought he may not have been wearing a coat.
Anyone with any information is urged to call Cheshire Police on 101 quoting incident number 559 of 26th January.
