“Anthony’s family are being supported by officers and have asked us to share new images of him as we appeal for any information to establish the circumstances around his death, which remains unexplained at this time.
“Officers want to speak to anyone who saw Anthony since he was last seen on Monday 2 September in the Poulton Road area of Wallasey.”
When he was last seen, Anthony is believed to have been wearing a dark coloured hooded top, dark jeans and red Adidas trainers with white stripes.
He also wore a North Face cap and silver rimmed glasses.
Detective Inspector Nick Suffield said: “Although we aren’t treating the death of Anthony as suspicious, it remains unexplained and as such we would like to speak to anyone who saw him in recent weeks, or who has any information as to where he had been.
“His family are understandably devastated and naturally want to know exactly happened between his going missing and being found, as do we.
“As well as living in Wallasey, Anthony was known in Poulton and Birkenhead on Wirral, and the Rhos on Sea and Llandudno areas of North Wales.
