Police launched an appeal on Thursday asking members of the public if they had any information on the whereabouts of Brendan Halliwell.
Yesterday, officers were called to Robinson Lane, Brierfield, at 5-52pm to a report of a sudden death.
While the body has not yet been formally identified, it is believed to be that of Mr Halliwell, 47, of King Street Terrace, Nelson.
A police spokesman said: “His family have been informed and they are being supported by specially trained officers. Our thoughts are with them at this very sad time.
“The death is not being treated as suspicious and a file will be passed to HM Coroner in due course.”
