North Yorkshire Police have asked people in Ireland to help them find relatives of the elderly man

North Yorkshire Police have asked people in Ireland to help them find relatives of an elderly man who died in Scarborough.

Simon Curtis Smith, who passed away at his home on January 2, is believed to have Irish connections but authorities have been so far unsuccessful in finding his next of kin.

They are appealing for anyone who might know the man to come forward.

A North Yorkshire Police spokesperson said: “Our coroner's officers are appealing to people in Ireland as they continue their search to find the next of kin of Simon Curtis Smith who died at his home address in Scarborough aged 70.

“Enquiries following Simon's death - reported to us on 2 January - have not revealed any next of kin.

“They now believe he may have relatives in Ireland, although it is not known whereabouts.

We would really appreciate any shares with your Facebook friends in Ireland - either Northern or Southern - to help us trace his family.

“Anyone who can help locate any members of his family is asked to contact the Coroner's Office on (44) 01609 643168.

“There are no suspicious circumstances surrounding Simon's death.”
