The body of a man in his 60s was found at a woodland in west Wiltshire this morning.
Police officers were called to Clanger Wood in Yarnbrook, near Trowbridge, at around 9.30am.
The discovery came hours after the disappearance of Michael Poulton, 60, who was last seen walking along the A350 towards Trowbridge – police later said he was located early this morning. The condition in which he was found has not been confirmed.
A large number of police vehicles partially blocked the road while they attended the scene.
A spokesperson for Wiltshire Police said: “The death is being treated as non-suspicious at this point. His family have been notified and are being cared for by specialist officers.
“A file will now be prepared for the coroner’s office.”
