Craig Simpson Craig is described as a white man, with short grey hair, he wears glasses and was last seen wearing dark grey trousers, a grey jacket and a blue fleece.

West Mercia Police Statement

We’re sad to report that the body of man who went missing on 17 March has been found.

Craig Simpson disappeared after leaving his home in Leominster.

The body was found by search and rescue teams in a river near Leominster yesterday (Saturday 24 March) afternoon.

Craig’s family has been informed.

There are no suspicious circumstance surrounding his death.

Thanks to everyone who shared our appeal.
