Detectives investigating the death of Greenhithe policeman Gordon Semple are trying to identify a mystery man seen on the day he went missing.

Stefano Brizzi appeared at Bromley Magistrates Court on Monday charged with Mr Semple’s murder.

Detectives at Met Police are “satisfied” that human remains found last week on the Peabody Trust Estate in Southwark Street are those of Gordon Semple, who was reported missing on April 1.

No cause of death has been established, but a further post-mortem is due on Wednesday.

Brizzi is set to appear at the Old Bailey on the same day.

DCI Cliff Lyons said: “I am keen to trace a man who went to Brizzi’s flat in Southwark Street on April 1 at about 3pm. He was there for only one minute, and did not go inside, but it is incredibly important that we speak to him.

“If you are that man please come forward and call us on 020 8721 4961. I will treat what you tell me with sensitivity and confidentiality - please get in touch with us I need to talk to you.”
