The body of a missing teacher has been discovered in the Manchester Ship Canal, police have confirmed.

John Curran, 29, had been missing from his home in Salford since Tuesday, April 6.

Greater Manchester Police (GMP) have now confirmed that officers searching for John sadly found his body in the canal on Friday night.

There are believed to be no suspicious circumstances surrounding his death.

A GMP spokesperson said: “Officers searching for a missing man have sadly found a body in the Manchester Ship Canal in Irlam.

“He has been identified as missing 29-year-old John Curran, last seen in Irlam.

“There are believed to be no suspicious circumstances and a report is being prepared for HM Coroner.”

John’s family issued an emotional appeal following his disappearance earlier this week.

His sister Kate, 41, told the M.E.N earlier this week: “We want to tell him that we love him and that he will be safe if he does come home.

“There’s nothing to worry about.

“We just want him to get in touch and let us know he’s safe.”

Until recently John had been teaching English in Madrid but left the role in February, his family said.

The pandemic and subsequent strict lockdown in Spain took its toll on him and he had been struggling with his mental health, they told the M.E.N.

After a spell in Italy, John returned home to England around three weeks ago.

He stayed with his sister Kate, 41, and then his parents, Desi and Margaret Curran.

He disappeared after leaving their home on Francis Road in Irlam at around 7pm on Tuesday evening (April 6), saying he was going for a walk.

Friends and neighbours formed search teams to help look for him.
