Officers from Staffordshire Police have called off the search for missing person Matthew Harrison, who was last seen in Leek yesterday at around 6pm (August 7th) with an appeal for information sent out at around 20:30
Sadly, the body of a man, believed to be 36-year-old Matthew, was found earlier today in an area of woodland near to Ashenhurst Way.
Matthew’s family have been informed and our thoughts are with them at this difficult time.
Formal identification will take place in due course. Detectives do not believe there are any suspicious circumstances and a report will be prepared for HM Coroner.
The matter is being referred to the Independent Office for Police Conduct (IOPC) due to previous police contact.
