Circumstances of Disappearance
On September 5th, 1974, eight men were on a drilling barge. As they were making no headway against a strong current, it was agreed upon to park the barge for the night. The eight men worked together to park the vessel however one of the legs failed to lower, causing the barge to tip. Bradburn was amongst the men who were thrown from the barge.
Despite dragging operations Bradburn has never been located.
