Mohamed Mussa, 27, known by his friends as Mussa, was reported missing on Sunday October 17.

Known to his friends as Mussa, the body of 27-year-old Dutch National was pulled from the River Thames in the capital earlier this week after being reported as missing

The Dutch national lived in Wandsworth, and inquiries into his death are still 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.

Police are appealing for more information on the whereabouts of Mussa, who was last seen at 5.29am on Sunday October 17 as he walked past Simmons Bar on Putney High Street, pictured

‘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.
