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

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

His body was discovered around 8am on Tuesday morning, a Metropolitan Police spokesperson confirmed.

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

Metropolitan Police Detective Chief 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 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.
