Appeal to BMX riders in search for missing soldier

Detectives investigating the disappearance of a soldier from Brompton Barracks have issued a fresh appeal to two BMX riders seen on Corporation Street minutes after the teenager was last sighted on CCTV.

Police are growing increasingly concerned about the whereabouts of Josh, 18, who was last seen by a friend outside the City Wall pub in Rochester on Wednesday 10th April.

We now are focusing our attention on known last CCTV sightings of Josh heading towards Gas House Road. We know that two males on BMX bikes were cycling past that area, along Corporation Street, just minutes after sight of Josh is lost. I am appealing to those two people who were in that area shortly after 1am to come forward and let us know if you saw Josh and where.

– Investigating officer, Detective Sergeant Rik Spicer, Kent Police

It is important to point out that you are not in trouble, we just want to learn of Josh’s last movements and you may hold vital information on this. I would urge you to call us on 101, quoting reference 10-0243. Alternatively contact Kent Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
