The search for a missing Leeds United fan has been called off after the discovery of a man’s body.

Essex Police had issued an appeal for help after Mark Barnes disappeared from his home in Southend on December 30.

Officers thought the long-term Whites fan may be in Leeds.

But the search ended after a man’s body was found in woods in Hockley village, between Southend and Chelmsford.

Essex Police said his death was not being treated as suspicious and Mr Barnes’ family had been informed.
