The death of missing university student Viktor Ivanelo, whose body was found under a railway arch, is not being treated as suspicious, according to police officers.
The body of the 21-year-old was found in Victoria Recreation Gound in Surbiton on March 28, more than a month after he disappeared after leaving a friend's house in Esher on February 26.
Mr Ivanelo, a business management student at the University of Surrey, was reported missing after leaving a friend's house in Esher at 2am on Sunday, February 26. His phone, keys, earphones and bag were among belongings found along a bridleway by a horse rider in Chessington that morning. He had been spotted on CCTV travelling to Claygate from Clapham Junction station the day before he disappeared, but officers said not a "single sighting" of him had been reported.
Teams from Surrey Search and Rescue had been involved in the search along with police dogs, drones and helicopters. His family had also resorted to hiring a private detective, Andy Kemp, a former police officer who had worked for the Metropolitan Police’s missing desk for eight years. His father Valeriy Ivanelo, who lives in south London, said the family were "deeply shocked" by the discovery in a heartfelt tribute to his son.
