The body of a man found at Broadbridge Heath is sadly believed to be that of missing David Cairns from Rudgwick.
David, 68, of Church Street, Rudgwick, had been missing since October 26, when he was last seen having dropped his car off for repairs at a garage on the Lawson Hunt Industrial Park.
His body was found in a field beside a path linking Sargent Way and Old Wickhurst Lane, Broadbridge Heath, by a member of the public who was walking nearby shortly before 3.30pm on Thursday (January 16).
There are no suspicious circumstances and the death is currently being treated as unexplained.
While he has not been formally identified, police are confident that it is he. His family has been informed and the matter passed to the coroner’s officer.
Our thoughts are with his family.
