Police enquiry to trace last movements

Officers have currently keen to trace the last movements of a man whose body was found at around 3.10pm on Wednesday 21February 2018 on Fistral Beach in Newquay.

Following further examination and identification, it was confirmed that the body was that of previously missing Newquay man, Dylan Henty.

The death is not being treated as suspicious, however, police are conducting enquiries on behalf of the coroner.

PC Verity Veal said: “Dylan, aged 47, left his supported accommodation in Newquay at around 5pm on Saturday 17 February 2018.

“We are interested in hearing from anyone who may have seen Dylan in between this time and the time when his body was located.

“Dylan was described as white, with dark brown hair worn in a ponytail. He was 6ft 2ins tall and of slim build. He had hazel coloured eyes.

“Dylan was last seen wearing dark blue jeans and a green checked shirt, a black beanie hat and black trainers. Dylan had a brain tumour which caused issues with his speech and he would possibly have appeared to be confused or agitated.

“Anyone with information is asked to contact Newquay CID via or by calling 101 quoting reference number EN/002827/18.”
