Police investigating the disappearance of Polish-born Bogdan Nawrocki have launched a murder enquiry and have arrested four men in connection with it.
Since the murder investigation has been launched four men have been arrested following the discovery of Bogdan Nawrocki’s blood at a property near his home in Radford.
Detectives are searching the city for his body.
Four men, aged between 27 and 46, are being held on suspicion of the 22-year-old’s murder.
Despite an extensive search and numerous media appeals, Bogdan hasn’t been seen since January 5th.
Detective Chief Inspector Tony Heydon, who is leading the investigation, said: “In this case, we have spent the last three months looking for proof that Bogdan is still alive.
“We do not have that proof, and there have been no sightings of him. Following a search of a property in Radford, we have discovered traces of his blood. These traces have been examined by a scientist and the evidence leads us to believe he has been murdered.”
House to house enquiries and searches for Bogdan’s body took place in Radford yesterday.
Mr Nawrocki was last seen near his home in Bobbers Mill Road on Sunday, January 5.
Dena Wilson, owner of Dena K Hair Design, in Bobbers Mill Road, said: “He was last seen walking past my shop and the police came and looked at my CCTV. I am really shocked by this because I feel safe in this area.”
Tony Heydon said:”I had to tell Bogdan’s sister that I believe he has been murdered. Whilst she is in being supported by officers this is clearly a devastating blow to her.
”I urge anyone with information about where Bogdan is to call us in absolute confidence. If you know anything now is the time to come forward.”
