AN APPEAL to find the next of kin of a recently deceased man from High Wycombe has been launched by the Buckinghamshire Coroners Office.

Peter James Green, known as Jim, had lived in Totteridge Road, High Wycombe, from June 2010 until his recent death.

But the Coroners Office has so far been unable to get in touch with Mr Green's next of kin and are appealing for help in tracing his family.

It is believed he lived in High Wycombe, or the surrounding area, prior to moving to Totteridge Road.

An inquest into the death of the 72-year-old was opened on Tuesday and has been adjourned until Wednesday, March 5.

Anyone who can help trace Mr Green's family should contact the Coroners Office on 01494 475505.
