A body was found in a woodland as police were searching for a man who had been reported missing from a village.

The man's body was discovered in a woodland on Friday, May 3 at Pettaugh, near Debenham in mid Suffolk, and emergency services were immediately called to the scene. 

While the body is yet to be formally identified, the family of the man have been informed. 

The death is not being treated as suspicious and a full report will be prepared for the coroner in due course.
