Body found in search for missing Reading student

A police search discovered a body in a campus lake


A body has been found in the search for missing Reading student Daniel Williams.

This comes after a police search which included 30 officers was deployed in a land and sky search.

The search resulted in a body being found in a lake at the University. According to Thames Valley Police, the body has not yet been formally identified but Daniel's family have been informed.

Daniel's family had previously said that they believed him to be "a happy, normal 19-year-old enjoying university life."

The University of Reading held a vigil of hope for him on Monday in the bar where he was last seen.

Reading is currently providing support for Daniel's close friends, with university activity continuing as normal.
