Police cordoned off the area as soon as they were on the scene.

A police mobile command unit, forensics experts, and the Boston Fire and Rescue boat were all involved in a major operation scouring the area were the body was found for evidence.

Lincolnshire Police are now appealing to anyone who has seen Mr Stolarek in the last four months to get in touch.
