Body found in missing Rugby man search

Police searching for a 77-year-old Warwickshire man have found a body in a field.

Peter Osborn from Rugby went missing after leaving Rugby St Cross Hospital on 3 Jul where he was treated for a leg complaint.

Inquiries are under way to see if the body, which was found near Braunston, is the missing man, police said.

A post-mortem examination will be carried out later. The death is not thought to be suspicious.

Warwickshire Police put up a large poster of Mr Osborn outside Rugby's town hall as part of their investigation.

A police helicopter and dogs have also been used in the search for him.
