High risk missing person Alan Milburn was found at a farm at the end of a police search with no evidence of third party involvement in his death, an inquest has heard.

At the opening of the inquest into the death of the 69-year-old retired auditor from Armes Street, Norwich, Norfolk Coroner’s Court heard Mr Milburn died as a result of toxicity.

Mr Milburn, who suffered with general anxiety disorder, was last seen at his home address at 9am on November 14 last year.

His partner of 22 years, Sharon Nunn, 63, said he was a “very gentle person” in an emotional plea for his return, adding he was “a beautiful person inside and out”.

His body was eventually found in undergrowth at Rogers Farm adjacent to Marriott’s Way in Old Costessey on December 28, more than six weeks after his disappearance.

A full inquest into his death is due to be held at Norfolk Coroner’s Court on July 24.

The Samaritans can be contacted on 116 123.
