A force spokeswoman said: “Humberside Police received a call at 11.40am from a member of the public reporting a body in the River Hull on Bankside, Hull. A man’s body has been removed from the water.”
“Formal identification has not taken place – it is believed it is the body of Alexander Spence and his family have been informed.”
A post-mortem examination will now be held to establish the cause of death.
Alex Spence went missing Saturday April 10, 2010 at 10.30pm when he left Princes Avenue, Hull (UK) to walk home on Beverley Road, in Hull. According to people in Hull, Alex had no history of disappearing nor did he suffer from any mental disorientation. This sudden disappearance was according to them out of character for this father of two small children.
