A few hours ago unfortunately a mans body was discovered, but as far as I know its not been identified yet. IIRC he was discovered near Wombwell, so hopefully not him as its quite a way away. Thanks again for everyones help so far xx

 

Just had a quick search and it seems the body is of a 15 year old boy :(

There was reports on BBC Sheff earlier today that a body of a man was discovered in a river in Doncasterand they couldn't get it out of the river but they said it was believed he had been there for up to 4 weeks.

There was something posted on twitter about a body being found in a weir next to doncaster prison, not really sure how to link an address to this, it may or may not work.....

 

No it doesn't sorry but it's been put on by @Hallamfmnews if someone could try and link it?

 

Hope it isn't related to this elderly gentleman

On the radio this evening they mentioned the mans body in the river next to doncaster prison, thats the one they couldn't get out cos of the weather, a boy found dead in elsecar and another mans body found in Barnsley this afternoon.

 

Unfortunately not good news, but Barnsley and doncaster are all many miles away from where this gentleman is from so they may not be related at all, fingers crossed.

 

 

It seems the mans body has now been removed from the river in donny

This is on Look Norths facebook page this morning

 

 

Police who found the body of a man in the River Don say they're staying in touch with the family of a pensioner who's been missing for three weeks. The emergency services recovered the body in Sprotbrough yesterday with the help of an RAF helicopter. The man's not been formally identified, but relatives of 82 year-old Ernest Lancaster who was last seen in the Brinsworth area in early April have been informed of the development

Aww how sad. I'm almost certain the River Rother here is fed by the River Don so it is plausable its him. Thanks for the info everyone, I only found stuff about the poor 15 year old. Whoever these men are, I hope the families are OK (as much as they can be anyway) :(
