Body found in River Ribble after search for missing Fulwood man
A body has been found in a river following a search to find a missing man from Fulwood, say police.
Police say that while formal identification is yet to take place, the body is believed to be that of John Culshaw, who was reported as missing on Saturday, June 30.
Mr Culshaw’s car was found near Penwortham Holme allotments, close to the River Ribble and sadly a body was recovered from the river last night.
His death, police say, is not being treated as suspicious.
A post-mortem examination will take place in due course and a file will be passed to the coroner.
Insp Chris Abbott, of Preston police, said: “Our thoughts remain with Mr Culshaw’s family at this sad and difficult time.”
