The Orleans Parish coroner’s office has identified a body found in the Mississippi River on Wednesday as Michael Showers, an actor from the HBO show “Treme.”

Showers’ body was pulled from the river in New Orleans near the Riverboat Natchez after 11 a.m., investigators said.

The St. Bernard Sheriff’s Office said Showers lived in Chalmette with his girlfriend and was reported missing on Tuesday. His girlfriend told deputies Showers went to have a drink with a friend and never returned home, police said.

Showers’ credits also include appearances in the critically acclaimed cable television series “Breaking Bad,” “The Vampire Diaries,” the 2000 film “Traffic” and the Louisiana-shot movie “I Love You Phillip Morris.”
