Human bones found in woodland belong to a man reported missing in May last year, DNA analysis has confirmed.

A skull, torso, arms and right leg found by police in Tilgate Forest, West Sussex, in February, are those of Jean Leveque.

Two other bones found by a fisherman in January had already been identified by Sussex Police as Mr Leveque's remains.

Police said the death is being treated as unexplained but not suspicious. The coroner has been informed.

Mr Leveque, who grew up in Mauritius and moved to Crawley in 2008, was last seen by a friend.

It is believed his whole body has now been recovered.
