Body confirmed as Durham University student Euan Coulthard

The body recovered from the River Wear in Durham city last Friday afternoon has now been formally identified as Euan Coulthard.

The 19-year-old was reported missing on Thursday, 15th January after he failed to return home following a night out.

The results of post mortem examination will be forwarded to HM Coroner but police are satisfied there are no suspicious circumstances regarding Euan’s death.

The coroner is expected to arrange for an inquest to open, probably later this week.

We are very grateful for the assistance we received during our searches from Euan’s friends and fellow students, as well as all the other agencies and volunteers who took part. Our thoughts are now very much with Euan’s family at this sad time.”

– Supt Colin Williamson
