The body of a West Wyalong man reported missing on Friday has been found dead in bushland.

Danny Leigh Block, 54, was last seen at 8.15am on March 17 leaving his home on Railway Road.

Mr Block had a brain injury and suffered from a physical disability, for which he required the use of an electric wheelchair.

Relatives and carers contacted police when he did not return home Friday evening with concerns for his welfare.

Officers from Griffith Local Area Command conducted a search Friday night but were unsuccessful.

Police, Rural Fire Service and State Emergency Services recommenced their search on Saturday and Mr Block’s body was found in bushland at the edge of the township at 5.20pm.

His death is not being treated as suspicious and a report will be prepared for the coroner.
