Sadly, they body of a man was recovered from the River Ouse in York on Sunday 5 July 2020.

Although the man has not been formally identified, officers have informed the family of York man, Nick Gunnell who was reported missing on 30 June.

Officers were alerted by kayakers on the River Ouse between Scarborough Bridge and Clifton Bridge on the afternoon of Sunday 5 July.

A report will be prepared for the the coroner.

Our thoughts are with Mr Gunnell’s family at this time.



North Yorkshire Police is appealing for the public’s help to locate missing 55 year-old York man, Nick Gunnell.

Mr Gunnell was last seen around 11.20am this morning (30 June 2020) at his home address on Holgate Road in York and is believed to have visited a business address on Oxford Street shortly afterwards. Officers are extremely concerned for Mr Gunnell’s welfare.

He is over 6ft tall, of a slim build with short, cropped grey hair. We believe Mr Gunnell may be wearing dark blue jeans, a blue v-neck jumper, a blue lightweight quilted jacket and blue shoes with a white sole. He may also be wearing a baseball cap with a Leeds logo on and is possibly carrying a backpack.

Anyone who has any information that could help to locate Mr Gunnell should call 999 for an immediate sighting or 101 with any other information quoting reference: 12200110795.
