Police say a decomposing body found in the Delaware River Saturday may be a man who went missing while tubing three weeks ago.

Lower Makefield Township Police were called to the area of Richard Road, one mile north of the Calhoun Street Bridge, around 4:30 p.m. for a report of a body found in the water.

Investigators say a white man, approximately 25 to 35 years old was found hanging on a low tree branch and wearing shorts. Police say it appeared that the body had been in the water for an extended period of time.

Police say there were no signs of foul play.

Thirty-year-old Anthony Del Prete of Herndon, Va. was reported missing after tubing with a group of friends near 2 Walters Lane in Point Pleasant, Bucks County on August 10.
