Update 11:55am CT, June 25: The New York Police Department confirmed Tuesday morning that Etika has been found dead.

This heartbreaking news comes just days after the NYPD started a search for the YouTuber, whose real name Desmond Amofah.

At 12:38pm on Tuesday, the official NYPD Twitter account said simply, "We regret to inform that Desmond Amofah aka Etika has been found deceased".

"It has been reported to police that the missing was last heard from on Wednesday, June 19, 2019 at approximately 2000 hours by phone". A body later confirmed to be Amofah's was found in the East River on Tuesday morning, according to NY law enforcement officials.

On Thursday, June 20, YouTube removed Etika's "I'm Sorry" video from the site for violating its terms. Amofah was reported missing on June 19 after he published a video saying goodbye to fans. He created a YouTube account in July 2012, for which he produced mostly Nintendo-related content until focusing on livestreaming. Following a suicide scare two months ago, Etika was criticized for tweeting anti-Semitic, homophobic sentiments that seemed nearly schizophrenic in nature.

One said: "If it is Etika that'd be bad; even if it ain't though still an unfortunate event".

Hamilton wins French GP to extend Mercedes' unbeaten run to 10

In the film, he apologised for pushing people away and confirmed he suffered from mental illness.

"Let my story be one that advises caution on too much of the social media s-t, man", he added.

If you have, or someone close to you has thoughts of suicide, confidential help is available for free at the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline. Even after police found a body in the East River that matched Etika's description, until the body was identified, no one believed the news was real. "I am hoping and wishing for the best".

Etika's friend, Alice Pika, tweeted a series of messages while the streamer was missing. "I hope he didn't get hurt", he continued.

Amofah's TR1Iceman channel on YouTube now has 134,000 subscribers, while his Twitter account has 332,000 followers and his Instagram has 273,000.
