9:13am Thursday 9th August 2012 in News
A BODY found in open parkland in Netherton is that of missing 30 year-old Steven Mitchell police have confirmed.
The grim discovery was made yesterday morning on land off Blackbrook Road by a man who walks through the parkland regularly.
Police are not treating his death as suspicious and the Black Country coroner has been informed.
Officers launched an urgent appeal for Steven, who was thought to be suffering from depression, after he went missing on Sunday night from an address in Netherton and failed to turn up for work the next day.
