The family of a man who died after going missing from his home have paid tribute to a “wonderful” person.

Hedley Graeme Mutton, known as Graeme, was reported missing from his home in Market Deeping on Tuesday (November 24). His body was found in Greetwell Quarry, Lincoln, on Saturday (November 28). Police are not treating the death as suspicious.

Graeme, 41, was a teacher and had worked at the Deepings School. Before then he taught for many years in Birmingham where he had lived, close to his son, Tyler, who he adored. Graeme played football and rugby locally and attended Stamford School from age 11. He also represented his country at hockey.

In a statement, his family said: “Graeme went missing last Tuesday and a plea went out on Facebook to try to find him. The response was overwhelming, thank you to everyone who passed on their best wishes.

“Sadly, Graeme’s body was found by police close by to where he went missing on Saturday. He had suffered for some time with depression.

“The family would like to thank everyone for their support. It is going to be tough for us all, and we would greatly appreciate your respect in allowing us all some privacy at this time.

“Funeral arrangements will be advised in due course.

“Rest in peace Graeme. Forty-one years of age.

“A wonderful son, father, brother, cousin, uncle, nephew, brother in law, friend, colleague, teacher, and teammate.”
