Officers searching for a missing man have sadly found a body.

At around 6:25pm yesterday evening (Sunday, August 16th), a police officer making enquires into the whereabouts of Geoffrey Martin Bradshaw, known to his friends as Martin, 76, from Lytham, discovered a man deceased in Liggard Brook just off Ballam Road in the town.

Whilst he has yet to be formally identified, the man is believed to be Mr Bradshaw.

His death is not believed to be suspicious and his family have been notified. A file will be passed to HM Coroner.

Fylde Police posted an appeal yesterday evening to ask for people’s help to find Mr Bradshaw and so we would like to thank anyone who shared or commented on our post.

Our thoughts are with Mr Bradshaw’s loved ones.

Geoffrey Bradshaw was a popular and well liked individual.
