Police update 2: Suspicious disappearance, Goodna

Detectives have confirmed human remains discovered at a Goodna property this week belong to missing 58-year-old man David Thornton.

Results of forensic examinations and investigations by Ipswich Criminal Investigation Branch and the Homicide Investigation Unit have led detectives to this conclusion.

A 24-year-old man is expected to appear in the Ipswich Magistrates Court later today after extradition was granted in NSW this morning.

Police divers attended the property this morning where they searched a creek as part of ongoing investigations.

A freezer from the backyard was located during excavations on the weekend which contained human remains.

Mr Thornton was last seen in February.
