Appeal is made for information about Bognor Regis man

AN APPEAL has been made by the police for information about the final days of a Bognor Regis man.

The body of Barry Boyce was found on the beach at the end of Dark lane in Aldwick at 10.20am on December 11.

The death is not being treated as suspicious but the police officers preparing a file for the West Sussex coroner are trying to trace Mr Boyce’s movements between December 9, when he was last heard from, and December 11.

Coroner’s office Karen Hawes said today, Monday, January 13: “We need to hear from anyone who saw or spoke to Mr Boyce in the last three days of his life.

“Please contact us with any information you might have so we can piece together where he went and when.”

Mr Boyce, 69, had recently moved to Aldwick Street in Bognor from Chichester.

He was white and had white hair and a well-trimmed short white beard.

He was wearing black corduroy trousers, a long-sleeved thin black sweatshirt, black socks and brown Blue Harbour deck-type shoes when he was found.

Any information should be given to 101 quoting Operation Comet, or Ms Hawes on 01243 843651 or email:
