Body found in search for missing Queen Elizabeth doctor

A BODY was found in the search for a missing doctor and Army medic.

Police searching for Lieutenant colonel Andrew Haldane, 45, say the discovery was made in Abberley,

Worcestershire, and, though formal identification is yet to take place,

his relatives have been informed of the development.

The consultant anaesthetist vanished after leaving work at Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Edgbaston, Birmingham, on Monday evening.

The man, from Ombersley, Worcestershire, worked at the hospital

helping COVID-19 patients during the pandemic, reports Birmingham Live.

Colleagues made desperate online appeals to find the missing

doctor over the past 24 hours as they grew increasingly concerned.

Officers have been keen to trace the silver Ford Focus Estate he was driving.
