Mr Mowbray was last seen at a hospital in the city on Tuesday before a widespread search was launched.

His family found and identified the body of their missing relative on Friday.

The death is not believed to be suspicious at this stage.

"The family of Mr Mowbray would like to thank all agencies who were involved in the search and also to members of the public and the local community for all of their support and help," a police spokesperson said.

"Police investigating the disappearance of Mr Mowbray would like to offer their condolences to the family."
