Body found in France's Loire River confirmed as music fan missing since police raid

A body found in the River Loire is that of a man who went missing after French police raided a music festival last month, local officials say.

They say Tuesday's autopsy on the badly decomposed body found close to the festival site in Nantes confirmed it was Steve Maia Canišo, 24.

Fourteen other people were rescued from the river soon after falling in during the police crackdown on 22 June. An inquiry has found no link between the raid and Canišo's disappearance.

Since Canišo's disappearance, posters have been put up in the area around the western French city that read "O¨ est Steve?" (Where is Steve?).

Steve Maia Canišo, 1995-2019.

Canišo disappeared 38 days earlier during a violent police raid on a Nantes music festival, in which tear gas and rubber bullets were fired.

He apparently drowned in the Loire, near the site of the raid - though previous searches had failed to uncover the body.
