A body has been found in the hunt for a missing Stoke-on-Trent man.

86-year-old Thomas Gay from Bentilee, was last seen on Monday.

Police say the body of a man was found at around 6.45pm on Tuesday in an area off Bridle Path in Ash Bank.

Thomas's family have been informed and our thoughts are with them at this difficult time.
