A BODY found in a moorland reservoir may be that of a man missing for several weeks.
Police divers searching Broomhead Reservoir, at the village of Bolsterstone, between Stocksbridge and Sheffield, made the gruesome discovery at 4pm on Wednesday.
They were hunting for Sheffield man Paul Haywood, who vanished on the moors.
But the identity of the body has not yet been confirmed.
A post-mortem was taking place later today.
Mr Haywood vanished after crashing his Toyota Celica car into a dry- stone wall on Bradfield Moors, near Bolsterstone, early on Mother's Day, March 21.
A passing motorist saw the 48-year-old slumped in the car.
She told police, but when officers arrived they found the vehicle bloodstained and empty.
Up to 40 police and mountain rescue volunteers - including the Huddersfield-based Woodhead Mountain Rescue Team - searched for two miles around where the car was found, but drew a blank.
Police divers since searched waters.
Mr Haywood, who was 6ft and weighed 20 stone, had been with friends in the evening before he vanished.
Police found a note at his home in the Stannington area of Sheffield which read: "Please forgive me - it's for me - sorry."
Police said there were no suspicious circumstances at this stage.
