Adam Seaton: Body found in water is missing Southport student
A body found in an estuary has been confirmed as that of a student who went missing more than five months ago.
Adam Seaton, 20, had not been in contact with family since 9 August when he was seen at a nature reserve in Southport, Merseyside.
The body was discovered in the Ribble Estuary on 18 January close to Old Hollow Lane in Banks.
Police said there was no evidence of suspicious circumstances and a file had been passed to the coroner.
Mr Seaton's family described him as a "homebird" and said his disappearance was out of character.
