Helsinki police announced Friday that the body of 26-year-old software engineer Hari Sudhan Thaneeru was recovered from the sea off Hernesaari beach in Helsinki on Thursday afternoon.

In a brief statement the Helsinki police department said only that officials are continuing investigations into the cause of death and could not provide any further details.

Earlier this week, police put out a call for assistance to track down the man. At the time they said that they did not suspect any foul play in his disappearance.

Thaneeru had been employed at the Finnish offices of Indian IT conglomerate Tata Consultancy services since 2013. Thaneeru was last seen Fredrikinkatu in central Helsinki at around 17:40 on 8 September, walking towards his home on Kalevankatu.

His phone was last determined to be active around 6.45pm in Hernesaari on the day that he disappeared.
