Body of missing man found in Elstead

Elstead incident

5:18pm 9th February 2018

The body of a missing man has been discovered around the River Wey in Elstead.

Surrey Police have been assisting Hampshire Constabulary in the search for the man since around 10.00am this morning (February 9).

Up to 10 police cars, a search helicopter and dog units were called in to the search. 

It follows the discovery of an abandoned white van at the bottom of Fulbrook Lane this morning. 

The River Wey was also being searched by a police diver, just behind The Mill.

Surrey Police tell us they were assisting officers from Hampshire Constabulary in the operation. 

The body is believed to be the missing man, however formal identification is yet to take place.

The missing man’s next of kin have been informed.

A local resident told Eagle when he was first alerted to the incident: "It was around about 5.30am that my neighbour reported to me that a van was acting suspiciously.


"Because there have been lots of van break-ins in Elstead and the surrounding area, I decided to go down and investigate."

"I got in a car and went down there and found an abandoned Transit Van with its side lights on, on the junction of Fulbrook Lane and I dialled 101.

"At 10.00am, a number of police officers descended on the area looking for a missing person."

Officers had been carrying out searches at the Woolpack, Thundry Meadows and the Hampton Estate throughout the day.
