rodney larsh missing man killed by train

Police believe that a man who was killed by a train in Essex, on Christmas Eve is missing Rodney Larsh.

The 20-year-old, who suffers from autism, went missing on Christmas eve with his sister, a dancer from Project G, posting appeal messages on her Twitter page to spread awareness and help find her brother.

Rodney was staying with relatives in Barking, on 24 December, but had not been seen by them since he left the house at 10.20pm that evening.

His family were said to have become increasingly concerned for his welfare and contacted the police, as he is autistic and unable to communicate.

A number of celebs took to Twitter and Instagram to spread the word and help bring Rodney home.

The man killed by the train has not been formally identified, but the Met Police believe it is Mr Larsh and his family has been informed.
