A Pickering man who was reported missing by his family has been found dead in nearby woodland.
Peter William Johnson, 77, had not been seen by neighbours for a couple of days and was reported missing on Saturday 25 July.
Due to his age and for medical reasons, Mr Johnson’s disappearance was being treated as high-risk by the police.
A full search involving specialist officers, search and rescue and a police helicopter was in operation looking for Mr Johnson , who was found in the woodland area yesterday (Sunday 26 July).
His family have been informed and are receiving support from officers.
North Yorkshire Police would like to thank emergency service colleagues and members of the public who responded to our appeal for assistance in locating Mr Johnson.
