Seven were detained after the missing man was found dead near the cemetery of Southampton

The locked area where the body was found

Seven people were arrested on suspicion of having found a man's body in a forest near a cemetery in Southampton.

The victim is said to be a 66-year-old man who disappeared on Thursday morning, police said in Hampshire.

On Friday, officials searched for him and found the body on Cemetery Road in Southampton Common on Saturday night.

The scene was shut off and the husband's family was told.

They are supported by professionals.

Det Ch Insp Dave Morgan asked everyone who was in Cemetery Road to see something "unusual or suspicious" between 12:00 GMT on Thursday and 17:00 GMT to make contact.

He said seven people have been arrested for suspected murder and are still in police custody.

It is expected that the formal identification will be done later.
