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

He was last seen walking alone about three miles away in Putney, wearing a navy blue trench coat, light blue shirt, dark trousers and canvas shoes.

His body was discovered around 8 a.m. Tuesday morning, a Metropolitan Police spokesman confirmed.

Police have launched an appeal for dashcam footage to establish his movements up to his death.

Police Detective Inspector Jim Shirley 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 17 October.

“We are convinced that he did not turn left down Lower Richmond Road or cross the road towards the church and cinema, but are not aware of his next move, and we are now asking for the public’s help in trying to determine exactly what happened.

“Were you on or on your way to Putney Bridge around 5:30 that morning or were you driving on Putney High Street at a similar time?

“Please check all dashcam footage in case you have caught anything that could help with our investigation and contact us as soon as possible.”

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