(Reading) -- Police and the Berks County coroner are investigating the death of a man whose body was found in the Schuylkill River.

Kayakers found the body around 2:00 p.m. yesterday in Exeter Township.

The dead man is believed to have been in his 50s or 60s and doesn't match the description of a man reported missing last month.

That man, 26-year-old Bradley Verret, has yet to be found.

The kayakers were searching for Verret's body when they found the other corpse.

Verret was last seen leaving Trooper Thorn's restaurant in Reading on February 7th.

Exeter police and the Berks County coroner had no new information to release today, when an autopsy was also planned.
