Police have been giving an update on their search for a missing 70 year old man from Drayton Parslow.

Samuel Alexander has lived in the village for 20 years. Last week neighbours reported to police that they hadn't seen him in the last couple of months.

A 22 year old man has been bailed without charge after being arrested on suspicion of murder.

Today Police said in a statement "Thames Valley Police is continuing its thorough and detailed search of a property in Drayton Parslow and can confirm this includes some excavation in the garden. It is anticipated the search will continue for some time.

To date neither a body nor a weapon has been found and there are no signs of a struggle within the house. The house recently suffered flood damage from a water pipe in the attic.

Mr Alexander has lived at the address with his son for the past 20 years and he separated from his partner, the mother of his son, 15 years ago. She has moved away from the area but has been spoken to by officers. It is a routine part of any missing person enquiry to speak to past and present associate."
