A body, believed to be that of Alexandre “Sash” Ponomarenko, was found in an industrial area at Kensington yesterday. Police were not treating the death as suspicious.

Mr Ponomarenko, 29, was last seen by his girlfriend at her flat just a few hundred metres away on February 17 when he said he had to make a phone call and do some work on his computer before also going to bed.

Police will prepare a report for the Coroner.
