The father of a seven-year-old boy who disappeared more than a decade ago has been found dead at his home in Suffolk.

Daniel Entwistle was last seen on CCTV at a convenience store in Great Yarmouth, Norfolk, on 3 May 2003.

His bike was found near Trinity Quay, sparking a harbour and river search.

Daniel's father David was discovered dead in Lowestoft on Wednesday. Along with his estranged wife Paula, he had been involved in several campaigns to find Daniel.

Recently, private investigators had taken up the search although Norfolk Police said the case was still open.

In 2012 Mr Entwistle said he was still haunted by his son's disappearance.

The coroner has been informed and a post-mortem examination will be carried out to ascertain what caused Mr Entwistle's death.
