Police are appealing for information after a body was found on a beach.

The body of Barry Boyce, 69, was found on the beach at the end of Dark Lane, Bognor, at 10.20am on Wednesday, December 11.

His death is not being treated as suspicious but the officers preparing a file for the West Sussex coroner are trying to trace Mr Boyce's movements between December 9, when he was last heard from, and the day his body was found.

Mr Boyce had recently moved to Aldwick Street, Bognor, from Chichester.

He was white and had white hair and a well trimmed short white beard.

He was wearing black corduroy trousers, a long sleeved thin black sweatshirt, black socks and brown Blue Harbour deck-type shoes when he was found.

Coroner's officer Karen Hawes said: "We need to hear from anyone who saw or spoke to Mr Boyce in the last three days of his life. Please contact us with any information you might have so we can piece together where he went and when."

Anyone with information should call 101 quoting Operation Comet, call Karen Hawes on 01243 843651 or email 101@sussex.pnn.police.uk.
