A body has been found at a beauty spot. 

Dorset Police received a call shortly before 10am this morning when it was reported a man had been found unresponsive in Compton Gardens, Poole.

While the man has yet to be formally identified, police believe it to be 39-year-old Craig Hayward – who was reported missing having left an address in the Branksome area on Monday morning.

The death is not being treated as suspicious and Craig’s family has been informed, according to the force. 

Chief Inspector Matt Buller, of Dorset Police, said: “Our thoughts are very much with the family of Craig Hayward at this extremely difficult time.

“I would like to thank all those who have assisted our search efforts over the last few days.”
