A BODY has been found in the search for a man who went missing when his jet-ski was found adrift off the Hampshire coast.

Elezaj Shkelzen, 33, from Oxford was last seen on the jet-ski leaving Lymington for Langstone Harbour at 6pm last Tuesday.

Hampshire Constabulary said a body had been found in the Solent on Monday.

Officers said Mr Shkelzen's family had been informed but formal identification had not yet taken place.

Hampshire Constabulary said it had been making enquiries in the few days after Mr Shklezen went missing with colleagues in the Coastguard, but turned to the public on Thursday for help.
