The 28-year-old was last seen at an address in Stockton and police were concerned as it was unusual for him to go missing.

A Cleveland Police spokeswoman said: “We can confirm that the body of a man has been located in the River Tees near to Chandler’s Wharf in Stockton.

“Formal identification has not been carried out, but the family of missing man James Miller have been informed of the discovery.

“A post mortem is due to take place, police are not treating the death as suspicious and information will now be passed to the Coroner.”
