Police believe a body found in woods in Devon is that of a missing teenager Jamie Grewal.

Officers were called to Ivybridge at around 3.30pm on Thursday, after a body was discovered in Long Timber Woods. The death is not being treated as suspicious, according to police.

Jamie, aged 18, came from the Ivybridge area and fears over his disappearance have been growing since he was last seen on January 4.

He had been having a lunchtime drink with friends after work in the Abbey Inn pub at Buckfastleigh on the day he went missing and has not been seen since.

He was later dropped-off in Ivybridge at around 1.30pm to 2pm.

A police spokesman said at the time of his disappearance: "This is out of character for Jamie."

Officers have informed his next-of-kin although formal identification has not taken place. Police said they were making inquiries and were now preparing a report for the coroner.
