The search for Marc Jones, a 44-year-old man from Marlow who went missing during a visit to family in Hockley on December 23, has been temporarily halted following the discovery of a body in Hockley Woods. Essex Police have now confirmed the development.

Marc Jones had last been seen in Hockley, Essex, during a visit to his family just days before Christmas. His sudden disappearance had prompted an extensive search operation involving both Essex Police and Thames Valley Police, as authorities sought to locate the missing man and ensure his well-being.

However on Saturday morning Essex Police reported that a body of a man had been found in the vicinity of Hockley Woods. While formal identification is pending, the family of Marc Jones has been notified of this development and is currently receiving support from officers of Thames Valley Police.

A spokesman for Essex Police stated, “Alongside colleagues in Thames Valley Police (TVP), we worked to pursue reasonable lines of enquiry to locate Marc, including following up sightings which were reported to us and to TVP colleagues. We will provide an update on our investigation as soon as we practically can. At this time, our thoughts are very much with Marc’s family and those close to him.”

The discovery of the body marks a tragic turn in the search for Marc Jones, leaving family, friends, and authorities deeply saddened by the outcome. As the investigation continues, the circumstances surrounding the discovery of the body are expected to be examined further.

Essex Police, in coordination with Thames Valley Police, will continue their efforts to provide clarity and answers to the family of Marc Jones, as well as the wider community that had joined the search efforts during his disappearance.

Further updates on the investigation are expected to be released as authorities gather more information. The community stands together in support of Marc Jones’s family during this difficult time, and their privacy is being respected as they navigate these challenging circumstances.
