Police say they are not treating the death of a blind man whose body was found in a Cornish clay pit as suspicious.

Nicholas Prouse from St Dennis has been missing for six and a half years.

A walker made the grim discovery at Treleavour last month.

Devon and Cornwall Police released the following information:

Police have confirmed that the body of the man recovered from the clay pit is that of Nicholas Prouse who has been missing for six and a half years.
 
Mr Prouse was reported missing from his home in St Dennis on 30 November 2007. An extensive missing person enquiry was undertaken at the time but he was never located. No reason for his disappearance was ever established.
 
A member of the public contacted the police on 13 April 2014 after seeing the body of a man below the water line at Trelavour Pit in St Dennis. The body was recovered by police divers and the death was treated as unexplained while police enquiries continued.
 
Although police kept an open mind, one line of investigation was to establish any links to missing man Nicholas Prouse.
 
Detective Sergeant Steve Reid, from St Austell CID, said: "Our thoughts are with the family at this time as this brings to an end many years of uncertainty with regards the whereabouts of Mr Prouse.
 
"The death is not being treated as suspicious and police will work with the coroner's office to establish the facts surrounding his death."

Mr Prouse's family have been told.
