Police said earlier this week that information came to light during their enquries into Mr Snell's whereabouts that "changed the investigation from one of a missing person to one of murder."

Searches have taken place in and around Mr Snell's home on Marsden Street and on Oakamoor Close.

And police said yesterday: "During those searches the body of what is believed to be Mr Snell has been found. Formal identification has yet to take place, however, Mr Snell’s family have been made aware.

"Our thoughts are with them at this time and they are being supported by specialist officers."
