Police have confirmed they have arrested a man on suspicion of murdering Police Constable Gordon Semple after human remains were discovered within a property. 

Police have released CCTV images of the last known sighting of high risk missing person, Gordon Semple.

The images released show Gordon, a serving Metropolitan Police officer, on Friday, 1 April at 15:00hrs in Great Guildford Street which runs between Southwark Street and Union Street, SE1.

Gordon Semple left his home address on Friday, 1 April to attend his place of work in Westminster. Gordon is a police constable.

 He was reported missing by his partner after failing to return home from work that evening.

The investigation to find Gordon continues to be treated as a high-risk missing person’s inquiry, but due to concerns for his welfare, the Homicide and Major Crime Command (HMCC) is now leading the efforts to find him.

The investigation is being led by Detective Chief Inspector Cliff Lyons.

DCI Lyons, said: “We continue to retain an open mind concerning the circumstances of Gordon’s disappearance, and consideration has been given to whether he may have become a victim of a crime. However, at this stage this is just one line of enquiry – it is still hoped that he will return home safe and well.
“We have released CCTV images of Gordon’s last known sighting on Friday, 1 April at 15:00hrs in Great Guildford Street, which runs between Southwark Street and Union Street, SE1.
“We have now established Gordon left the Shard at about 12:30hrs, and I would like to know where he went between 12:30hrs and 15:00hrs, when he was seen on the CCTV.
“We are yet to identify if Gordon met with anyone in that area, or was merely passing through. He can be seen looking at his mobile telephone, but not making or receiving a call.
“I am very keen to hear from anyone who spoke with Gordon at any point since Friday, 1 April or anyone with information which could assist our enquiries and establish his current whereabouts.
“I would like to reassure anyone concerned about calling the police, that they will be treated with the utmost sensitivity and strictest confidence.”
Gordon is described as a white man, 5ft 10ins tall, of a large build and shaved head. He was last seen wearing brown shoes, dark trousers and a lilac shirt.
Police are asking anyone with information to call the incident room on 020 8721 4961, or to remain anonymous, call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
