Police have confirmed that they have found the body of a missing chief inspector who disappeared last weekend.
The body of Chief Inspector Tim Frohwein was found at a national park yesterday.
Derbyshire Police discovered the body on moorland in the Goyt Valley in the Peak District National Park.
The 48-year-old father had been missing since setting out for a walk from his home in Buxton, and was last seen at about 2pm on Sunday, November 17.
It is believed that the inspectors body was found by a close friend who had joined the search.
Derbyshire Police have said: ‘We would like to recognise the efforts of the immediate members of Tim’s family, particularly his sons who organised and co-ordinated searches.
‘They organised family and friends to search parts of the Goyt Valley that had not yet been formally searched by Derbyshire Police and mountain rescue teams as part of the structured search process.
‘Tim was found by friends of the family who had volunteered to help search for him.
‘They found him on the Grouse Moor and the two men immediately notified officers who were nearby.
‘Derbyshire Constabulary would like to offer sincere condolences to his family.’
