Police say the body of David Young, who went missing in October, has been found in the River Ribble at Preston.

28 year old David Young was last seen on the 17th October in the Albion Street area near Canal Bridge.

Witnesses described him as being on the road, walking in a disorientated state.

A member of the public found his mobile phone on Livesey Branch Road in Blackburn shortly before the last sighting of him on Albion Street.

Specially trained police divers and officers searched the canals and open area close to Albion Street and Livesey Branch Road but Mr Young was found in the water at Preston on Wednesday.

A Post Mortem confirmed there are no suspicious circumstances surrounding his death.

Detective Inspector Mark Winstanley said “This is a tragic set of circumstances and this is the news that I’m sure David’s family have been dreading. Our thoughts are with the family and we will continue to provide them support through this difficult time.”
