Body discovered in wooded area on the Elgin Industrial Estate in Swindon
Detectives believe there were no suspicious circumstances
Investigation voluntarily referred to the Independent Office for Police Conduct
Detectives investigating the disappearance of Bradley Porter have said that there are not thought to be any suspicious circumstances - following the sad discovery of a body in Elgin Industrial Estate yesterday (17/09).
The 25-year-old from Swindon was reported missing six weeks ago, and although formal identification has yet to take place, officers have updated Bradley’s family with the latest development.
In line with Wiltshire Police’s continual drive to reflect on procedures to inform future such investigations, we have made a voluntary self referral to the Independent Office for Police Conduct (IOPC) and asked the Professional Standards Department to review actions.
Bradley Porter had been missing since August 6 after he left a property in Penhill Drive.
Since then, a dedicated team of officers have conducted widespread enquiries and searches of areas where Bradley was last known to be.
Detective Inspector Deb Hatch said: “My thoughts, and those of the investigating team, are very much with Bradley’s next of kin as they come to terms with this very sad development.
“Bradley’s family are being supported at this time by specially trained officers.”
