Mr Nunn, who has dementia, was reported missing after leaving home on foot, in Abbey Road, Leiston, at about 10am on Friday, July 19.

A dash cam captured the 82-year-old walking along Lovers Lane towards Sizewell at around 3pm that same day, but he has not been seen since.

Police have now confirmed the body of a man has been found at Dunwich following two weeks of searches, carried out by a combination of officers, volunteers from Suffolk Lowland Search & Rescue (SULSAR), and members of the local community.

The body was discovered by a member of the SULSAR team in a field at about 7.40pm last night, Thursday, August 1.
