Kent Police is appealing for the public’s help in tracing a soldier from Brompton Barracks who has been missing since the early hours of Wednesday morning.

Officers are growing increasingly concerned about the whereabouts of Josh Thomas, 18, who was last seen by friends outside the City Wall pub in Rochester on Wednesday 10 April.

Josh, who comes from Wales and is a soldier at the barracks on Dock Road in Chatham, had been on a night out with friends in Rochester and was seen shortly before 1am on CCTV cameras walking over Rochester bridge and into Corporation Street.

He is described as white, about 5ft 9ins tall, slim build and with short dark brown hair. He was wearing a dark blue Lyall and Scott jumper with white and red collar, grey jeans and white Converse trainers.

Officers are keen to speak with anyone that might have seen Josh on Corporation Street or might have some information that could help, to come forward.
