Police officers looking for Harvey Parker, the 20-year-old Lambeth man who went missing in December, have found a body in the Thames.
Formal identification has not taken place yet, but Mr Parker’s family have been told of the sad news.
The body was found near Embankment station in Westminster by lifeboat crews on Tuesday evening (January 4).
Detective chief inspector Lucy O’Connor, of the Central South Command Unit, said: “Sadly a body has been recovered from the Thames near where Harvey was last seen.
“We are providing Harvey’s family with all the available information. We are also asking for media to please respect the family’s privacy at this challenging and difficult time.”
Mr Parker was last seen leaving Heaven, a nightclub by Charing Cross station in Westminster, just after midnight on Friday, December 17. That is near to where the body was found.
