A body has been found in the search for a 23-year-old student who disappeared on his bicycle eight days ago.
Adam Lindley disappeared from his halls of residence last week and was reported missing to police on Sunday morning.
The Southampton-based student was last pictured on CCTV taking his bicycle out of the building on the morning of October 14, and had not been seen since.
Detectives revealed yesterday that a body had been found in the Lyndhurst area of the New Forest, and that the young man’s next of kin had been informed.
A spokesman for Hampshire Constabulary said: ‘Officers searching for missing Southampton student have discovered a body.
‘The next of kin of Adam Lindley, aged 23 years, have been informed.
‘Formal identification procedures will take place in due course.
‘The death is not being treated as suspicious at this time.’
Commenting on social media, Brad Horne wrote: ‘This is wrong, he would never do that. They need to pull this apart and find the truth, it’s in no way possible.’
A number of friends shared pictures of Adam after he went missing last week.
Hannah Burton, said: ‘Adam is one of the nicest guys I’ve ever met, please share and help ensure he is found safe.’
