Police are appealing for information after the body of a man was found in the River Thames.

Mohamed Mussa, 27, known by his friends as Mussa, was reported missing on Sunday.

His body was recovered from the water near Hammersmith Bridge around 8am on Tuesday morning.

Inquiries into the death of the Dutch national, who lived in Wandsworth, are ongoing.

He was last seen walking alone and was wearing a navy trench coat, light blue shirt, dark trousers and canvas trainers, the Metropolitan Police said.

Detective Chief Inspector Jim Shirley, from the Met’s Specialist Crime Command, said: “Our last sighting of Mohamed is of him walking past Simmons bar on Putney High Street towards Putney Bridge at 5.29am on Sunday October 17.

“We are confident he did not turn left down Lower Richmond Road or cross over the road towards the church and cinema, but are not clear on his next steps and we are now asking for the public’s help in trying to ascertain exactly what happened.

“Were you on or heading towards Putney Bridge at around 5.30am that morning or driving on Putney High Street at a similar time?

“Please check any dashcam footage in case you captured anything that could help with our investigation and get in touch with us as soon as possible.”

Anyone with information can call 101 or the incident room on 0208 721 4266.
