Portsmouth Sailor Found Dead In Seychelles
A Portsmouth-based Royal Navy sailor's died during a visit by his warship to the Seychelles in the Indian Ocean.
Local police have launched an investigation into the death of Engineer Technician (Marine Engineer) Charles Warrender, who was serving on HMS Richmond.
His body was discovered behind the national library in the capital city of Victoria at 6.45am on Saturday (30 May), according to local news reports.
A Royal Navy spokeswoman said:
``It is with great sadness that we can confirm that Engineer Technician (Marine Engineer) Charles George Warrender, from HMS Richmond, was found dead in the Seychelles on Saturday.
``The next of kin have been informed and the thoughts and sympathies of the naval service are with his family and friends at this sad time.
'The incident is currently under investigation by the local police, therefore it would be inappropriate to comment further.``
The 23-year-old is understood to have been living in Portsmouth, Hampshire, where his ship is based, but was originally from North Thoresby in Lincolnshire.
HMS Richmond, a Type 23 frigate, is in the Indian Ocean as part of Operation Kipion to protect Britain's international interests across the Gulf and the ship hosted a reception on board for British High Commissioner Lindsay Skoll last Friday to mark the Queen's birthday.
