UK: Richard Morris: Body found in search for missing diplomat

Police searching for a missing British diplomat have found a body in a forest in Hampshire.

Richard Morris, from Bentley, was last seen running in Alton in the county on 6 May.

Hampshire Constabulary said officers had discovered a body in Alice Holt Forest and the death was not being treated as suspicious.

Formal identification has not yet taken place, but the 52-year-old’s family have been notified.

Police previously searched the forest, where Mr Morris was known to enjoy running.

Officers also inspected 2km (1.2 miles) of the River Wey, as well as scouring CCTV footage and carrying out house-to-house inquiries, before their search was scaled back.
