There are many indications that the body found in the water at Lindholmen on Wednesday is that of 25-year-old Pierre Nilsson who has been missing since early March.
”The person in question had Pierre Nilsson's belongings on him and there are many indications that it is him, but we can not confirm it at this stage. For example, it can be that another person is carrying his belongings,” said press spokesman Björ Blixter to Göteborgs-Posten.
The police told Pierre's family about the find on Wednesday. The family posted a message on Facebook on Wednesday evening.
”Our beloved Pierre Nilsson is found. He was found dead today. Rest in peace.”
A forensic examination will be carried out and the identity of the body should be known on Friday at the earliest, Björ Blixter told Göteborgs-Posten.
