Etika's channel has been removed from YouTube, though most of his content, including archived streams and viral reactions to game announcements, has been preserved on multiple channels across YouTube.
Police confirmed they responded to an emergency call at 6.18pm local time (11.18pm BST) to a body floating in the water.
He also confirmed he suffered from mental illness, and discussed the power of social media - advising "caution" around using it too much. "We regret to inform that Desmond Amofah aka Etika has been found deceased", the NYPD tweeted as a new update on its initial tweet, that informed the public he had been missing since June 19.
On the evening of June 24, there were reports that the NYPD found a body matching Etika's description. According to the New York Post, police have found his driver's license, wallet, cell phone, Nintendo Switch console and a laptop bag containing clothes and headphones. "I will be dropping nuclear missiles very, very soon on every single human being... we're about to get some fireworks real soon".
YouTube has since taken the video down, as it violates their guidelines, but it has been reuploaded by several other people. I love you all. Prior to that, Etika made suicidal statements online.
