A body found in a river in Prague has been identified as Karl Law, who went missing in the Czech capital several weeks ago.
The 34 year old from Fareham, Hampshire had been on stag weekend with 12 other men, when he went missing on 15th November.
Since the disappearance of Mr Law, friends and family remained in Prague to search for him. Lee Cross, the cousin of Law and the stag at the party Law had been attending told the BBC: “the people in Prague have been very helpful. Cafes and bars have been handing out hundreds of flyers for us”.
As well as this search campaign, the family hired a private investigator.
The body of Law, a builder with a fiancé and a father of one was found Sunday afternoon in the Vltava River, located about half-a-mile away from where he was last sighted.
Initially, Law’s relatives were confident that the body found was not his due to discrepancies with the clothing.
A Foreign Office Spokesperson said: “We can confirm the death of a British national in Prague and are in touch with the local authorities, we are in close contact with the family and are producing consular assistance at this difficult time.
Tributes have been posted on a Facebook page set up to find him, as well as on Twitter.
