Detectives searching for Steven Dyson, who has been missing since New Year's Day, have found the body of a man, Greater Manchester Police said.

Officers were called shortly after 10.30am to a report of a body in the river in Summerseat, Bury.

Police said the man's death is not being treated as suspicious.

Detectives are working to identify the man and the circumstances surrounding his death.

Sadly today officers have found the body of a man in the river, but it is too soon to say if this is the body of Steven Dyson.

His family are aware and we are offering them specialist support at this incredibly difficult time.

I would like to thank everyone who came out and helped with the searches, and also the people who shared our appeals and supported the investigation.

We are still actively looking for Steven and working to identify the man found in the river and the cause of his death.

– Chief Inspector Tom Martin, Greater Manchester Police
