Tributes are being paid to Primrose Hill man John Regan, whose body was found in the Regent's Canal near Camden Lock last night.
Dozens of friends of the popular Mr Regan, of Chalcot Road, have posted messages on a special Facebook page set up in his honour.
Mr Regan's devastated friends and family had conducted an intensive search after he went missing last Wednesday evening after leaving a bar on Chalk Farm Road. CCTV captured him heading towards the canal, seemingly on his way home.
Yesterday police divers searched the canal but found no trace of 30-year-old Mr Regan, raising the hopes that he could still be alive and well. His last movements and the question of how he ended up in the canal are still a mystery but police are not treating his death as suspicious.
