A BODY has been found in the search for missing man Sean Day who vanished more than a week ago.
Sean Day, 29, was said to have fallen into the River Wye during the early hours of Saturday, July 29.
Frantic searches were undertaken, with the police helicopter called to scour the waterway, too.
In the days that followed cops named Sean as the missing man, while revealing three men have been arrested on suspicion of murder.
It emerged the 29-year-old had been involved in an "altercation" before he vanished into the waterway, which is popular with families and dog walkers.
The arrested men, aged 34, 28 and 24, have been released on bail while police continue to probe the run-up to Sean's disappearance.
