POLICE officers are no longer looking for a man who had been missing for more than a month.

Joshua Joyce, 30, was reported missing from the Manningtree area on September 24, but had not been seen since September 13.

Essex Police officers subsequently appealed for the public's help after having exhausted all other lines of enquiry.

The search, however, has now been called off by the force.

A spokesman for Essex police said: "Thank you for all your help and support."
