Police searching for a missing 20-year-old man who disappeared on 29 April have recovered a body.

Officers searching the Gloucester to Sharpness Canal made the find at 1700 BST near St. Ann Way Bridge.

A spokesman for Gloucestershire Constabulary said he could not confirm whether the body is that of Jamie Drew-Orpin.

Mr Drew-Orpin disappeared while walking home to Hempsted, following a night out in Gloucester city centre.

He was last seen leaving The Registry nightclub in the city at about 0330 BST on Friday and reported missing on Saturday.

After leaving the club CCTV images show him on St Ann's Way Bridge and walking along the canal towpath.
