A missing Nottinghamshire man, who was last seen in Benidorm in March, has been found dead.

John Elkington, who lives in Bleasby and is originally from Hucknall, has died in Spain, the Foreign Office has confirmed.

A Foreign and Commonwealth spokesman said: “We are providing support to the family of a British national who has sadly died in Benidorm, Spain.”

This comes after an international search for John, after his passport was found in a bar, and his movements could not be traced since March 28.

Worried friends and family of the Nottinghamshire man also shared his picture and engaged with travellers in Benidorm.
