Alice Gross was last seen near the Grand Union Canal on 28 August
Police investigating the disappearance of teenager Alice Gross say a body has been found in a west London river.
Officers recovered the body from the River Brent on Tuesday night, the Metropolitan Police have confirmed.
The 14-year-old's family have been updated on the development. Alice was last seen in west London on 28 August.
Formal identification is yet to take place. A post-mortem examination will be scheduled in due course, police said.
Alice was filmed on CCTV walking along the Grand Union Canal.
Convicted murderer Arnis Zalkalns, 41, remains the prime suspect in the case. He was filmed cycling along the canal 15 minutes after Alice and went missing from his Ealing home on 3 September.
The RAF had been drafted in to help police search for her and provide "aerial analysis" to locate areas that should be searched.
The hunt for Alice, from Hanwell, west London, is the largest Met Police search operation since the 7/7 terrorist bombings in 2005, with 600 officers from eight forces involved.
