FATAL EVENT. - On Wednesday last a man named John Day, of Evesham, attended a wood sale at Offenham, a village in the neighbourhood, and remained at the place of sale till it was quite dark, he afterwards called at another place or two in the village, and as his nearest way home was to cross the river Avon at a ferry, he called there after the person who attends to it was gone to bed, he however made himself heard, and wished to be rowed across, this however was objected to by the person who keeps the boat, on account of the danger occasioned by the quanttity of ice then in the river. Day however not heeding this admonition expressed his determination to row himself across and was heard to get into the boat for that purpose, since which he has not been seen or heard of : but the boat was found in the morning floated down the river as far as the ice would allow it to go, and near to it Day's hat and the boat shovel were found. Search has been made for the body but it has not yet been raised.

Hereford Times 26 May 1838

On Monday evening , the 14th inst. the body of a man, in a frightful state of decomposition, was discovered floating on the Avon in the neighourhood of Evesham. On getting it out of the water it was recognised to be that of John Day, whose disappearance in Feburary last gave rise to sundry conjectures respecting his fate, the most probable of which appeared to be that he had been drowned in endeavouring to row across the river. Nothing having since occurred to invalidate that supposition, an inquest was held on the body before Mr. Best on the following day, when a verdict of "Found drowned" was returned. - Worcester Chronicle
