A body found in a tree at a Bournemouth golf club is believed to be that of a missing Lithuanian man, police have said.

Jurij Sliachtecov, 21, went missing from Bournemouth in April 2011. His next of kin have been informed.

Dorset Police said they were not treating the death as suspicious.

A dog discovered an arm at Meyrick Park Golf Club on 31 March. More body parts were found the following day.

Following his disappearance, Mr Sliachtecov's family issued an appeal for him to get in touch and his case was covered in the Lithuanian press and on TV.

After the initial find of an arm and hand by the dog, more body parts were found in a tree in a secluded wooded area off the main golf course.

Formal identification is yet to take place. The coroner has been informed.
