  • Details of Disappearance
    On September 5, 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.
