British police have found a body in their search for a missing poet.

The Guardian reports that no formal identification has taken place yet, but the family of award-winning poet Gboyega Odubanjo has been notified of the discovery.

No suspicious circumstances were observed, said the Guardian.

Odubanjo, described as "a rising talent on the UK poetry scene," was last seen around 4 a.m. Saturday.

In an eerie coincidence, Odubanjo's upcoming poetry collection was inspired by the unsolved murder of a boy dubbed "Adam" — whose body was found in the River Thames some twenty years ago — and took its name from the victim.
