The body of a man found in the River Derwent on Wednesday afternoon is believed to be that of trainer Owen Brennan, Derbyshire Police have said.
The 77-year-old Derbyshire handler suffered from memory loss and had been missing since leaving his home in Wheeldon Avenue, Derby, on December 17 at 4.45pm.
Police said a passer-by spotted the body at around 12.10pm in the water at Darley Park, near Derby city centre. The body has not been formally identified.
A statement issued by Derbyshire Police read: "Police can confirm the body of a man has been found in the River Derwent in Derby today (Wednesday, January 9).
