Now, specialist officers are scouring the capital’s main waterway.

“The search is being conducted on the river following a review of CCTV in the area that indicates that Harvey may have entered the water near the Golden Jubilee Bridge,” a statement from the Metropolitan Police said.

“At this stage of the investigation there is nothing to suggest that there is any third party involvement.”

Mr Parker is described as having short black hair and a slight build. He is mixed race and 5ft 8ins tall.
