Police searching for a missing student in Reading have found a body in a lake on a university campus.
Officers discovered the body during the sixth day of a search for Daniel Williams, 19, who had not been seen since the early hours of Thursday morning.
Superintendent Stan Gilmour, Thames Valley Police’s area commander for the town, said: “Tragically officers searching for Daniel have located a body.
“While the identity of the person who died is yet to be established, we have informed Daniel’s family and are providing support to them.
“Please could I make an appeal to respect the privacy of Daniel’s family at what must be a deeply difficult time for them.”
Police said the death was unexplained but not being treated as suspicious.
The university said it was “providing support to Daniel’s close friends”.
Police launched a major search aided by volunteers, firefighters and the National Police Air Service following his disappearance.
Mr Williams’s family also distributed leaflets appealing for information on his whereabouts.
