Man’s body found in Carlton Colville

A man's body has been found this afternoon after police, coastguard and the RNLI launched a search for a missing Suffolk man.

Vincent Ward, 47, was reported missing from his Carlton Colville home on Thursday.

He was last seen on that day by his wife as she left for work.

When she returned home from work at about 5.15pm there was no sign of her husband and there was no contact from him.

Following Mr Ward's disappearance, crew from the South Broads RNLI station and coastguard search teams from Lowestoft, Southwold and Gorleston were called in to assist Suffolk police in searching the area around the Carlton Marshes visitor centre on Thursday night.

The body was found at about 2pm today marshland in the Carlton Colville area.

A Suffolk police spokesman said: 'We have recovered a body of a man in the marshes. A formal identification will take place tomorrow.'
