UPDATE: The search for missing Wangaratta man Nathan Day has come to a tragic end with a body found at a home and two men in custody.
The 59-year-old and 42-year-old man were assisting police on Wednesday night after the body was found at the Ryan Avenue Home.
Detectives found the body about 4.20pm and worked into the night at the home, which is located about 200 metres from the house where Mr Day was last seen on July 26.
Police also set up a crime scene guard at the Morrell Street property.
A friend had reported Mr Day missing 10 days after he was seen leaving the home.
He had not used his bank account or phone, which led to a major search operation involving local detectives, the Missing Person Squad and SES volunteers.
The body was removed from the Ryan Avenue unit about 7.10pm.
Forensic officers appeared to have focused their attention on a small section of the property's yard and used shovels to dig up the area.
The body has not been identified and no charges laid.
