POLICE searching for a missing man traced him to a house in Darfield - where he was taken ill and later died.

Police have been trying to find Marc Lunn, 40 and were called to the house at around 4am on Sunday.

When police arrived, he was having breathing difficulties and despite officers and paramedics delivering CPR he died.

Detective Sergeant Andy Knowles, from South Yorkshire Police's Force Crime Unit, said: "Mr Lunn's family have been informed and are being supported by specially trained officers.

"At this stage we do not believe there are any suspicious circumstances to the death and a file will now be prepared for the coroner.

"I would like to thank the public and the media for their help in publicising our appeal to trace Mr Lunn."
