Warren Beard, a dad-of-five, was discovered in the Des Plaines River in Illinois on Tuesday.

Beard, 53, was last seen on July 2 at around 10pm after visiting pals, as reported by the Chicago Sun-Times.

An urgent probe was launched and cops received footage that showed a car going into the river less than an hour later.

Fire crews combed the scene and found a car.

Divers were drafted in and sonar technology was also used as part of the search efforts.

Officials revealed the search had been hampered due to the cloudy nature of the water.

Tributes have poured in after Beard’s body was identified.

Beard was a pastor at the New Israelite Missionary Baptist Church and his colleagues have been left stunned.

“He was the greatest person, one of the greatest men I’ve ever met in my life, and this is painful,” Chenier Alston, also a pastor, told the NBC affiliate WMAQ-TV

“Words can’t even begin to describe how we feel.”

Alston revealed she called Beard an hour and a half before he was last seen.

He revealed his last words to the clergyman were “I love you.”

Beard’s cause of death remains unknown as it could take several weeks for his cause of death to be established.
