Missing man found

Following our earlier appeal for help to find missing man Raymond Hassall we can confirm a body has been found.

Although formal identification has not yet taken place it is believed to be Mr Hassall, aged 84, from Meir Heath.

Officers were called to a field off Leek Road, Weston Coyney, just before 1.30pm today after a member of the public discovered the body.

Mr Hassall’s family have been informed and are being supported by officers.

The death is not being treated as suspicious and a report will be prepared for HM Coroner.

Staffordshire Police would like to thank all those people who shared our appeal to find Mr Hassall. Your support is greatly appreciated.
