Richard Okorogheye: Police divers used in hunt for missing student

The Met police said, "On the afternoon of Monday, 5 April, the Met was informed by colleagues from Essex Police that the body of a man had been found in a pond in Epping Forest".

The Metropolitan Police said the search of Epping Forest woodland is continuing for the fifth day today, but that nothing of relevance to the investigation had been found over the weekend.

The Metropolitan Police has deployed officers, horses, and dogs in the search for missing Nigerian student, Richard Okorogheye.

His mother, a nurse, said her son, who was shielded during the pandemic due to having sickle cell disease, had struggled with his online studies.

Okorogheye, a student at Oxford Brookes University, had not been seen since he left home in the Ladbroke Grove area of west London on Monday, March 22, and was last seen boarding a bus.

He was reported missing two days later and was last seen on CCTV footage in the Loughton, Essex area walking towards Epping Forest on March 23.

The force previously said Mr Okorogheye's phone has not been in use since his disappearance.

Our thoughts are with the family and friends of Richard and we thank everyone who shared the missing person appeal within the Police Hour website.
