Description of Incident
Anthony Soh, 18, had been celebrating with friends from London's Imperial College to mark the end of term before disappearing, an inquest heard yesterday. The first year mechanical engineering student was last seen outside the university's student union bar Metric on March 22 this year after telling friends he wanted to go back to his halls of residence. When he failed to turn up to lectures the next morning police were informed and a search began. His desperate family and friends launched a massive hunt, as well as starting Facebook groups, to find the student. His body was dragged from the Serpentine boating lake in Hyde Park several weeks later after a mother and child on a pedalo raised the alarm.
