Body of missing man found on Portsmouth beach
The body of a man has been found on a beach after he was last seen going into the sea, according to police.
The 29-year-old was first reported missing after a fisherman spotted him getting undressed near Fort Cumberland in Eastney, Portsmouth, Hampshire, yesterday afternoon, and entering the water.
After the man failed to return to the shore, the Coastguard began a search and rescue operation which was called off at 6.50pm.
The body of the man was found on a nearby beach at 11.30pm yesterday.
A Hampshire Police spokeswoman said: "A body of a man has been located on Eastney beach.
"It has been confirmed this was the same man who was seen going into the water.
"His family have been informed. No suspicious circumstances have been identified."
