TRIBUTES have begun to pour in for 22-year-old Finn Andrews-Carlo, who was found dead after he went missing from a psychiatric unit in Solihull.
Finn, whose body was discovered on Warwick Road in the early hours of Wednesday morning, was reported missing from the Bruce Burns unit on the Solihull Hospital site on Monday April 15.
The Facebook page set up to help find the missing young man, rapidly turned into a tribute page, as news circulated about the tragedy.
One message, written on behalf of Finn’s family reads: “This is a message from Finn’s mum. Finn has been found, unfortunately it is not good news, he has passed away. Thank you for all your help and wishes.”
Other tributes describe Finn as a ‘lovely lad’ and described his death as ‘tragic.’
Ian Forster wrote: “I never saw him without a smile on his face and now this. I can’t grasp it, I really can’t. All the best to his family, I hope knowing he was loved by many is of a little comfort.”
Matthew Clugston added: “So sorry to hear this, he was such a lovely lad, can’t believe it.”
Another tribute read: “So tragic, I am so upset, I only had my first proper chat with him a week ago, and he made me laugh so much.”
And another said: “This news is truly unbelievable and so saddening. My heart goes out to Finn’s family and friends who will miss his warm smile and temperament.”
Finn’s death is not being treated as suspicious and has been referred to the Birmingham and Solihull Coroner.
Sheila Richards, interim director of strategic delivery (Adults of Working Age) at the Birmingham and Solihull Mental Health NHS Foundation Trust said: “Our trust owes its patients, and their families, a duty of care and confidentiality and as such, does not comment on individual cases.
“However, I can confirm that there will be a full and thorough investigation into the circumstances surrounding the death of a 22-year-old man.
“Our thoughts go out to the family at this difficult time.”
