BERLIN (AP) — Hamburg police say they believe they’ve found the body of a 29-year-old Scotsman who went missing in February after celebrating his brother’s bachelor party with a group of friends.

Police said they were called to Hamburg port on Monday morning after a witness informed them about a corpse in the HafenCity area of the Elbe river. It was recovered a short time later.

They said in a statement “there are indications that it is that of missing Liam Colgan” and that they are in touch with his family.

Colgan disappeared while he was out celebrating in the city’s Reeperbahn district that’s home to many bars and nightclubs. His family had launched a search on Facebook and police also published a missing persons appeal online and on the radio.
