A man’s body found in the Peak District has been identified as that of a top Chesterfield policeman missing from home for nearly a week.

The body of 48-year-old Chief Inspector Tim Frohwein, of Buxton, was found by family friends who had volunteered to help search for him.

Derbyshire Police today praised the efforts of the immediate members of Mr Frohwein’s family, particularly his sons who organised and co-ordinated searches.

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

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

Derbyshire Police offered their ‘sincere condolences’ to Mr Frohwein’s family.
