Officers searching for a man reported missing from Sandwich have located a body.

The body was found in the River Stour near Sandwich on the afternoon of Sunday 3 April.

Formal identification has not yet taken place, however, the family of 61-year-old Paul Goodwin from Sandwich who was reported missing on Sunday 20 March have been informed.

The death is not being treated as suspicious and a report is being prepared for the coroner.


  1. Formal identification has not yet taken place

    well maybe wait until the family have doen so, otherwise you are putting even more stress on them if it isnt him

  2. It is carefully worded , my Daughter died at my home so I sure knew so did my wife , we still had to go over the hospital with id a few days later and identify her body and sign a form.
    Until formal identification has taken place , forms signed etc a person cannot legally named.
    The police or whoever do not inform people / family a member is dead.
