POLICE searching for missing North Yorkshire man Howard Jackson, 63, have found the body of a man.

The family of Mr Jackson have been informed and there are not believed to be any suspicious circumstances.

A report will be prepared for the coroner.

Mr Jackson, 63, went missing from his home in Marton-cum-Grafton near Boroughbridge at around 8am on Saturday, July 13.

He left home wearing a denim t-shirt and pyjama trousers, and drove off in his black Ford Ranger.

Police said at the time it was out of character for Mr Jackson to be out of contact with anyone for so long.
