The search for a Tasmanian father of 2 who vanished on the Murray River on the NSW-Victoria border has ended in tragedy.

Police divers found a body believed to be that of Jesse Youd in the river at Mildura on Monday afternoon.

The 34-year-old was celebrating a bucks party with three mates when their dinghy capsized late on Saturday.

While the other men made it to safety, Mr Youd never emerged and it reportedly took his friends some time to realise he was missing. 

A report will be prepared for the Coroner.
