A man’s body found yesterday in the Goyt Valley has been identified as that of missing police officer Tim Frohwein.

Derbyshire Constabulary would like to recognise the efforts of the immediate members of Tim’s family, particularly his sons who organised and co-ordinated searches.

They organised family and friends to search parts of the Goyt Valley that had not yet been formally searched by Derbyshire police and Mountain Rescue teams as part of the structured search process.

Tim was found by friends of the family who had volunteered to help search for him.

They found him on the Grouse Moor and the two men immediately notified officers who were nearby.

Derbyshire Constabulary would like to offer sincere condolences to his family.
