Body found in creek
A body has been found on the outskirts of Blenheim today, police say.
A police spokeswoman said a member of the public found the body in a creek. She would not comment on whether the body was a man or a woman.
Police were called about 11.10am, she said.
She could not comment on whether the body was that of missing Blenheim man Glenn McGregor, 39, who was last seen on Thursday morning at his home.
Detectives and uniform police are gathered near the end of the Riverlands Rail Trail, behind Riverlands Industrial Estate. They have cordoned off a section of the track from Cobb Cottage Rd towards the industrial estate.
A man who lives in the area said police officers arrived just after 11am. He was told somebody had fallen off their bike and landed in the creek.
The creek was a shallow, man-made drain, the man said.
