THE family of Aaron Fiveash received the news they were dreading on Monday evening. That the body of their son had been washed on a beach in Hampshire, a month after he disappeared from home at the beginning of January.

Aaron had been suffering from panic attacks and was distressed when he left. A huge campaign was launched by family, friends and colleagues in a bid to find him.

Aaron’s mum and dad are now coming to terms with the worst thing that any parent can endure, the loss of a child. The thoughts of everyone, a parent or not, are with them.
