"His death is not being considered suspicious. A report will now be prepared for the Coroner," police said, thanking the media and community for their help in the search. 

Earlier this week, officers pleaded with people to come forward with any information of Mr Muller's whereabouts.

Police and SES crews have spent the past few days searching the hospital grounds, Bowen Park, Downey Park, Rasey Park and Victoria Park. Water police also searched Enoggera Creek.

Officers said they held concerns for Mr Muller's welfare due to his medical conditions, but said he was no threat to the community.

Mr Muller's wife, Naomi Chapman, who joined police for a media conference on Monday, said his disappearance was out of character.

"If you're out there Dan, please come home. Your babies are missing you," she said, referring to their three-year-old daughter and six-month-old baby.

“We really need you at home.

“Our three-year-old is asking where Daddy is.”
