A body has been discovered on the outskirts of Norwich.
Police were called shortly before 11am today (Tuesday 18 October 2022) after a member of the public found a body in a field off the B1108 Watton Road, between the River Yare and Colney Lane.
While formal identification procedures are yet to take place, the family of missing 40-year-old James Whitman, from Gressenhall, who was last seen at the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital on the evening of Monday 13 June 2022, has been informed.
The death is being treated as unexplained at this time but police do not currently believe there are any suspicious circumstances.
A file will be prepared for the coroner in due course.
