Police have confirmed the body found in the River Witham in Lincoln is missing man Ryan Morgan. The inquest into his death will be opened once tests have been carried out to confirm the cause of death. The 28-year-old disappeared from hospital on December 27th.
Police were called to Spa Road, in Lincoln, today after a rower on the River Witham reported seeing a body in the water. A police underwater search unit is at the scene to recover the body and officers say a post-mortem examination and identification will take place in due course.
The family of a man from Lincoln who has been missing since Christmas have made a direct appeal to find him. 28-year-old Ryan Morgan vanished from the the Peter Hodgkinson Centre at the Lincoln County Hospital - where he was receiving treatment for depression - last month.
His family says it is totally out of character for him to go missing and are particularly concerned that he has not withdrawn any money from his bank. Jennifer Morgan spoke to Calendar.
