An inquest has opened into the death of a man whose body was found three years after he went missing.

Chris May, 28, was last seen at his home in Kelvedon, Essex, on 25 May 2015, and his car was found 10 miles away in Fairstead two days later.

His body was found in Faulkbourne, near Braintree, on 13 May following a call from a member of the public.

The inquest was opened and adjourned at Essex Coroners' Court in Chelmsford. No cause of death has yet been determined.
