Forensic analysis has confirmed human remains found in a national park in Adelaide’s south are those of missing man Peter Glazebrook, police say.
The remains were discovered last week in remote scrub in the Onkaparinga River National Park, about three months after the 44-year-old was reported missing on September 14.
“Witnesses are sought regarding any sightings of Peter by members of the public in and around [the] Gate 12 entrance to the park,” Detective Acting Chief Inspector Mark Boileau said in a statement.
The Gate 12 entrance off Piggott Range Road is close to where Mr Glazebrook’s remains were found by officers from the Special Tasks And Rescue (STAR) Group on December 22.
An earlier air and ground search failed to find any trace of Mr Glazebrook, who was reported missing to authorities in mid-September by an Adelaide CBD service for the homeless.
Staff told police they had not seen him for a couple of weeks and were concerned for his welfare.
Police were told Mr Glazebrook and a companion went to the national park to hike but apparently became separated.
“On the day he was at the park he was believed to be wearing blue denim jeans, black sneakers with white soles, dark grey shirt and a black baseball cap,” police said.
Mr Glazebrook’s death is being investigated by the coroner and police have urged anyone with information on his disappearance or movements to call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
