Police investigating the disappearance of 29-year-old Richard MacKenzie found a body in the River Thames, near Vauxhall Bridge, at approximately midday on Wednesday, 22 October.

Formal identification has now taken place and the deceased has been identified as Richard MacKenzie of Kings Cross, London.

A post-mortem examination was held on Thursday, 23 October, at Poplar mortuary. A cause of death was not established and we await the result of further tests. However the death is not being treated as suspicious.

Richard's family has been updated of this development.

We ask that media give Richard's family and friends the privacy they require at this difficult time.
