The Disappearance of Bradley Allan Taylor

The Mysterious Disappearance of Bradley Allan Taylor


Case File Overview


In January of 2009, Bradley Allan Taylor’s family reported him missing to the London Police Service. 44-year-old Bradley was on a road trip home to Enfield, Nova Scotia from London, Ontario when he mysteriously disappeared.

During his trip, Bradley spent the night in Brockville, Ontario at the Travelodge Motel. On the morning of January 10, 2009 Bradley packed up his car and left the motel. Later that same day, the police found his vehicle abandoned. It was discovered near a railway crossing in Roussillon, Quebec. Many of Bradley’s important personal belongings were located in the car. The authorities searched the surrounding area, but didn’t turn up any sign of Bradley.

Soon afterwards, the Roussillon police contacted Bradley’s family in London, Ontario to let them know about their discovery. Bradley’s family promptly reported him missing.

Later, the Roussillon police conducted a more thorough and widespread search of the area around Bradley’s car. Again, nothing to indicate Bradley’s whereabouts was found. A few weeks after Bradley vanished, his family had flyers put up in the area where his car was abandoned.

Bradley remains missing.

Case File Theories


Due to the shocking lack of public attention paid to this case, there’s little information out there about Bradley’s disappearance. As a result, it’s almost impossible to offer any concrete theories as to what happened to Bradley during his fateful trip home.

What do you think happened to Bradley?

I think it’s safe to say that Bradley didn’t disappear voluntarily. He left behind his vehicle and many personal items, things that he likely would’ve taken with him if he wanted to leave and start a new life. I worry that Bradley may be the victim of foul play and that it’ll take a tip from the public to break open this case before it turns cold.

Bradley’s family deserves to know what happened to their loved one. If you have any information about Bradley’s whereabouts, please contact the London Police Service at 519-661-5670.
