A fundraising appeal has been launched to support the sons of a young dad found dead near his home town in Cornwall.

Daniel Clark from Redruth had been missing for over two weeks when his body was discovered at Gilberts Coombe.

The 34-year-old's friends and family had carried out searches of the local area, before police confirmed the tragic news.

His cousin, Gareth Fulcher, set up the Just Giving page for the boys Daniel described as "his world".

"Daniel Clark was my cousin, the best brother to Wayne and Tony, a devoted father of two lovely boys, a caring husband and a son who loved his mother Maria dearly.

"My cousin was the rarest of perfect human beings. I have no doubt many of you have never spoken to Daniel, due to his quiet, reserved, peaceful nature; but I guarantee most of you recognise him, due to being graced by his kind smile, when passing in the street.

"Daniel died tragically on November 7th 2018 and his funeral will be held at 1pm on Friday 14th December at Treswithian Downs Crematorium.

"Many people have offered support and kind gestures for which the whole family are extremely grateful.

"A collection will be taken at the Funeral and placed in trust for each of his boys, Chase and Riley Clark, until they are 18.

"This Just Giving page has been set up for people who want to show their support for Chase and Riley but may not be able to attend Daniel Clark's funeral".
