Body Discovered Near Northfleet Train Station, Family of Missing Reading Man Informed

In a sombre development on the afternoon of Thursday, 8 February 2024, Kent Police were called to a scene near Northfleet train station where they discovered the body of a man. The individual was pronounced dead at the location, marking a tragic end to the unfolding event.

While formal identification processes are still underway, the authorities have reached out to the family of an 82-year-old man from Reading, who had been reported missing since Thursday, 18 January, after last being seen in Kent. This communication suggests a possible link between the deceased and the missing individual, though confirmation is pending further investigation.

As of now, the police are not treating the death as suspicious. This preliminary assessment indicates that there may not have been any foul play involved in the man’s demise. However, a comprehensive report is being prepared for the coroner, who will conduct an inquest to officially determine the cause and circumstances surrounding the death.

The discovery has undoubtedly cast a shadow over the community, particularly affecting the family of the missing Reading man, who had been hoping for his safe return. The period of uncertainty since his disappearance has been a challenging time for the family, and this recent development, while potentially providing some answers, also brings with it a profound sense of loss.

Kent Police are continuing their investigation into the matter and will provide updates as more information becomes available. In the meantime, they are urging anyone with information related to the case to come forward to assist in the ongoing enquiries.
