Very sadly, Thames Valley Police have announced that they have found a body in the lake on the Whiteknights campus.

A formal identification has not taken place yet, and we will keep you updated as soon as further information is available.

Police have been searching the campus and nearby areas for Daniel Williams, a second-year Computer Science student who has been missing since Thursday morning. The police have informed Daniel’s family of this development and we are providing support to Daniel’s close friends.

University activities will continue today but please be respectful at this difficult time.

If you would like someone to speak to, please do contact our Student Welfare Team in the Carrington Building, available from Monday to Friday 10am-4pm.

Our Chaplaincy Centre are also available to provide support. If you would like to speak to someone out of hours, the Samaritans provide a 24/7 hotline (dial 116 123). You can also use Big White Wall, a free online community available 24 hours a day.
