Young man from Friesland found dead in ditch


The dead body of 21-year-old Arnee Elsinga has been found in a ditch near a primary school in Heerenveen, reports the Telegraaf.

The young man had been missing since last weekend, and police said that his death is not thought to be suspicious.

Scores of volunteers for Search And Rescue Friesland had been searching the area and two men discovered the body on Monday evening.

The ditch where his body was found was reportedly only several hundred metres from his house.
