POLICE believe a body found in a field near Ambergate Woods may be that of David Marshall, who was reported missing last month.
The body was discovered by a dog walker last Thursday.
Mr Marshall was last seen on Wednesday 9th November when he left his home in South Normanton to go to work in Somercotes.
His car was found parked in a layby on the road between Belper and Alderwasley on Tuesday 15th November. Extensive searches were carried out to find Mr Marshall.
The coroner has been informed of the death and attempts are being made to formally identify the body.
An inquest will be held in due course.
