The family of a man from Maidenhead have today (4/12) paid tribute to him.
Louie Mussenden, aged 30, from Maidenhead, went missing and was sadly found deceased in the Essex area on 28 November.
His family said in a statement: "We have been overwhelmed by the outpouring of love for our amazing son, Louie. Warm, friendly and quick witted, with an infectious smile and a wonderfully wry sense of humour, Louie was liked and loved by all who knew him.
“Louie gained a master’s degree in civil engineering and combined his academic ability with athleticism, strength and stamina, and was a black belt kickboxer. His adventurous spirit led him to a six-month solo-trip across South America where he climbed to the peak of the Andes.
“It is tragic to have lost Louie at age 30 just as he was building his career with great colleagues at BMW Sytner Maidenhead. We would like to thank Thames Valley Police for all the support they have given us during this most difficult of times.
