Extensive searches by police, family, friends and strangers were carried out after the beloved teacher left his home in Trimdon Station on Wednesday, April 14, and didn’t return.

His family launched a huge social media appeal in the hope of bringing Darren, who was a popular biology teacher at Stokesley School in Middlesbrough, home safe.

Sadly, Durham Constabulary has now confirmed the body of a man was recovered from the Hawthorn area yesterday evening (Sunday, April 25).
