THE parents of a young man found dead at Southwold a year ago say they still have many unanswered questions.

Nineteen-year-old Daniel Hannant, from Reydon, went missing after an evening out with friends at Southwold Royal British legion Club on February 28 last year. After a major search, his body was found in a dyke near Blyth Road allotments three days later.

As the anniversary of his death approa-ches, his parents Michael and Patricia are still desperate for information about what happened to their son after he left the club at about 11.30pm that Saturday.

Mr Hannant, of Windsor Road, Reydon, said: “We've many unanswered questions and want to put our minds at rest over what happened.

“Even after all this time it's possible that someone might remember something - someone who was at the club or saw Daniel on his way home.”

“It's so difficult not knowing. We want to know more about his last movements: what happened to him before he died.”

Daniel worked as a shop assistant at the Somerfield store in Southwold. He lived with his parents and two brothers.

An inquest into his death has still not been held, although it is expected that one will take place in April.

Police recently issued a renewed public appeal for information. They say their investigation remains open but they are not treating Daniel's death as suspicious although his case has been passed to CID.

Suffolk police spokeswoman Anne-Marie Breach said: “We know how important it is to Daniel's parents to find out how he died.

“With an inquest due to be held in a couple of months time, we're keen to have as clear a picture as possible of what happened that night.”

Information can be given to the coroner's officer at Lowestoft on 01986 835300.
