A desperate appeal has been put out for information to piece together the final movements of a man whose body was found in Sydney’s south earlier this month.
Scott Bradshaw, 42, was reported missing on April 30, after being last seen a week earlier in the Brighton Le Sands area of Sydney.
Detectives conducted a search of parkland at Rockdale Bicentennial Park on May 3 and found his car in a nearby car park.
His body was located partially submerged in a nearby large pond surrounded by bushland.

A post-mortem has since been conducted with the remains formally identified as Mr Bradshaw.
Investigators have established his vehicle was parked in the carpark about 9.30pm on the night of April 24.
On May 29 NSW Police Divers carried out a further search of the pond where his remains had been found.
Divers recovered clothing which investigators suspect belonged to Mr Bradshaw.
As inquiries continue into the circumstances surrounding his death, Strike Force investigators have released CCTV of people in Bicentennial Park on 24 April 2021.
Investigators do not believe they are involved in Mr Bradshaw’s death but would like to speak to them as part of their inquiries.
Police are continuing to piece together his movements and are appealing for anyone who may have seen or spoken with him during this time to come forward.
