West Mercia, UK | Police investigating the disappearance of 21-year-old Nathan Fleetwood confirmed on Saturday that a body has been found in the River Severn.
Nathan was reported missing on Sunday, March 27 when he did not return home following a night out in Shrewsbury town centre. He was last seen in the early hours of that morning after leaving the Albert Shed bar.
West Mercia Police said the body was recovered on Friday. Formal identification has not yet taken place, but Nathan’s family have been informed.
Nathan is described as having short dark hair and was wearing a white t-shirt with a black hoodie, black jeans and white Nike trainers when he went missing.
Police previously said there was no evidence to suggest anyone else was involved in his disappearance.
A Facebook group named Help Find Missing Nathan Fleetwood was created to assist in the initial searches for the 21-year-old.
Nathan’s friend, Toby Owen, thanked those who helped with the search. A Facebook post read: “If this has taught you anything it is that we can all pull together as a community plus everyone outside of that circle and help when a family or anyone is in need and that the world can be a kind and better place.
“Please don’t ever take your loved ones for granted you don’t know what is ever round the corner.”
In a separate post, Emma Mills wrote: “After almost 3 weeks of searching, unimaginable worry and anguish, we find that Nathan, a lovely young man has left this world far too early.
“A young man who after a night out living his life like any other young person, watching the football, few drinks and spending time with people he knew and cared about, has resulted in the unimaginable.”
Nathan’s mother Carol Fleetwood said a gathering will be held in a courtyard in Shrewsbury on Sunday to share stories and memories of him.
