Police have identified the body found floating in the Neshaminy Creek this morning in Bristol Township, Bucks County. The man, Edward Godin, 76, was reported missing early this morning by his wife. Godin, an alzheimer's patient, was last seen walking toward Neshaminy Creek.

Police searched the area, but he could not be found.

Then, around 5:30 this morning, two fishermen discovered his body floating in the creek near Hazel Avenue.

Investigators say the preliminary investigation indicated the death is a probable accidental drowning, however the official cause and manner of death will be determined by the Bucks County Coroner, who has scheduled an autopsy.
