A BODY discovered in the River Nene near Wisbech Yacht Harbour has been identified as that of missing Malcolm Brown.

The 66-year-old’s body was discovered in the yacht harbour, in Nene Parade, just before 11.30am on Friday.

His death is not being treated as suspicious and the case will be passed to the coroner.

Mr Brown, commonly known as Mac, went missing after leaving his home in Falklands Drive, Wisbech, at about 6.30pm on Tuesday, October 23. His wife Annette had pleaded with him to stay in because it was dark.

Annette issued a direct and emotional plea for his return earlier last month, saying: “I just want you to know that I love you to bits.”
