The death of a man who was reported missing from a hospital in Wyke could not have been prevented by police responding to a missing person report, the Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC) has found.

The independent IPCC investigation examined West Yorkshire Police’s response to the report Peter Barnes was missing from Cygnet Hospital, on Bradford Road, on October 13, 2011.

The investigation looked at risk assessments which were conducted and the actions taken by officers from West Yorkshire Police.
