Darren Moore, who was a drag queen, was last seen leaving the Pulse nightclub in the early hours of Sunday morning.
His body was discovered in an alley near Windsor Place and Park Lane. A man has been arrested on suspicion of manslaughter.
Paul Raikes, the head of the investigation, said that initial investigations have not revealed a cause of death.
However, they are carrying out extensive inquiries to establish the exact circumstances of Mr Moore’s death.
He thanked the community for their support and said that he would like to appeal to anyone with information to come forward.
Please refrain from posting details about the incident on social media, as the police investigation is still in its early stages.
His friends and family have been asking for help in finding him since he didn’t make any contact with them.
Darren, who was a jewelry designer, had been performing in his drag act known as Crystal Couture prior to his disappearance.
A spokesperson for the police said that they are still looking for anyone who saw him in the area in the early hours of Sunday.
A fundraising page for Darren’s funeral was also set up by his husband.
