Police appeal to public after man found dead in car park in 2017

Police are appealing to the public for help to identify a man whose body was recovered in April 2017 from a car park in Spring Bridge Mews in Ealing.

Hillingdon Police posted on Facebook: “Police were alerted to a concern for safety from a member of the public where upon attending, this man was found deceased. His death was not thought to have been suspicious.

“Despite extensive enquiries made in April 2017 and continued efforts over the past four years, this man has not yet been identified.

“Officers hope that this appeal may prompt someone to think about a family member or friend that they lost touch with four or more years ago.

“It is believed he was known locally as Paul and that he was homeless, having lived under the car park ramp for approximately six years.

“He was a white man, 5ft 5ins tall, of slim build, aged between 55 – to 75 years old, with dark greying thinning hair.

DC EVANS of the Met’s West Area Safeguarding Unit, said: “This man was a son to someone, a family member and likely a friend to others. There may be a family somewhere who have spent years wondering what happened to their loved one. If you can help us finally identify him so that his family and friends can be notified please don’t hesitate to get in touch.”

If you have information you think might help identify this man please call police on 101 or Tweet OMetCC quoting 17FOUO03946.
