A BODY has been found after a man from Sandwell went missing last year.

John Barrett from West Bromwich went missing from his home on Sunday, May 29.

An appeal was launched by police to find Mr Barrett who suffered from type 1 diabetes, and it was believed he did not have medication with him.

However, West Midlands Police have confirmed the body of the 35-year-old has been found.

The death is not being treated as suspicious and officers are supporting Mr Barrett’s family.
