Police find man missing for two decades and pronounced dead

Police in Jeseník, north Moravia have found a man who was missing for 20 years and had been pronounced dead, a spokesperson said. The man, who is 43, had been living under a false identity since disappearing in 1994 in order to avoid a prison term for theft. He apparently came forward in mid-January in the hope of qualifying for an amnesty declared by the former president at the beginning of the year.
