A missing grandfather has died from the effects of hypothermia hours after being found, according to his family.
Jack Platt went missing from his supported accommodation in St Helens on Saturday.
He'd been diagnosed with dementia, and his family believe he may have gone for a walk and become confused.
Mr Platt was found on Monday, but died from hypothermia.
In a Facebook post, his family said they were thankful he did not have to spend his last hours alone.
