The family of a missing man have been told that human remains have been discovered in Newquay.

Chad Gibson has been missing from the town since December 2015.

At the time police said his disappearance was "completely out of character" and extensive searches had failed to locate him.

Human remains found in Tregurrian are now being forensically examined. Police said it may take some time for them to be formally identified.

Mr Gibson was last seen on Fore Street in Newquay at about 18:00 BST on Saturday 19 December.

His mother had offered a reward of £2,000 for information about his whereabouts.
