Updated: Body found in search for missing man

POLICE are appealing for the public’s help in tracing an elderly man from Wallingford.

James Spence, 88, was reported missing in the early hours of this morning after he failed to return from a walk.

He is described as white, tanned, with grey/brown hair. It is thought he might be dressed in dark trousers and a grey jacket - or possibly in dark blue pyjamas.

Anyone who sees a man matching his description or photograph is asked to call 101, quoting reference 90 9/8/18.

He is known to frequent Wallingford but people in Blewbury, Astons and North and South Moreton are asked to stay vigilant.

Police previously said Mr Spence was aged 82, but have since corrected this.
