Police have called off a three-month search for a missing man after his body was found. 

Kieran Devlin, from Grays, was last seen on December 22 and both Essex Police and his family had issued a public plea for help to find him. 

But police have today (Wednesday, March 16) revealed they are no longer looking for Mr Devlin after a man's body was found earlier this week.

A force spokesman said: "We are no longer looking for Kieran Devlin following the discovery of a man’s body in Grays on Monday.

"A post-mortem examination will be carried out to determine the cause of death before a file is submitted to the coroner.

"We are providing support for Kieran’s family and they have requested privacy at this time."
