    LEDBURY man says new police enquiries into the mystery disappearance of his sister 21 years ago have made him question his long-held belief that she drowned in the Severn.

    Phil Miles, 64, now suspects that “something untoward”

    may have happened to sister Angela Bradey in 1995 – or that she could still be alive.

    Troubled Angela, 34, who had suffered from anorexia and underwent an abortion after becoming pregnant in a psychiatric hospital, disappeared on January 16 in 1995.

    It was only days after she had been discharged into the community because of the closure of Coney Hill Hospital in Gloucester.

    Police have marked the 21st anniversary of a Gloucester librarian’s disappearance by issuing a new appeal for information on her whereabouts.

    Angela Bradley was 34 when she went missing on January 16, 1995.

    She was never found and her parents both died without knowing what became of her. Andrew and Florence Bradley were dramatically changed by the disappearance of their daughter, say the family. From being sociable outgoing people who enjoyed frequent outings together the couple became depressed and rarely left their home.



    "We’d particularly like to speak to anyone who may have spoken to her during the days leading up to her disappearance or anybody who can help us build up a picture of Angela’s lifestyle prior to her disappearance"

    At the time that Angela went missing she was wearing light blue trousers, a dark blue tracksuit top, pink socks and black boots.

    Anyone who may be able to provide information on Angela’s disappearance is asked to contact Gloucestershire Police on 101, quoting incident number 281 of January 13 2016.

    At the time of her disappearance police searched the River Severn in the area of Mythe Bridge, near Tewkesbury, where her car was found and there were also helicopter sweeps of the area.

    Angela’s brother Phil, 64, of Ledbury, says she was an ’intelligent but quiet woman’ who had suffered from anorexia and spent weeks in the former at Coney Hill psychiatric hospital not long before her disappearance.

    When the hospital closed she moved into her parents’ home but went missing a few days later.

    Police accept she may have drowned in the Severn but say if that is what happened it would be very unusual for no trace of her body ever to be found.

    Noting the spelling of last name sometimes spelled as Bradey or Bradley.

    "I had always assumed she went into the river," said Phil. "But I think the police now feel that the leaving of the car by the river was a decoy.

    "The police have pointed out to me that when someone goes into the river the body always surface sooner or later. Angela's never has.

    "My gut feeling has now changed and I now wonder whether something unforeseen happened to her."

    Phil is hoping that police plans to talk to people who knew her and retired police officers involved in the original inquiry will - with the help of new technology - shed more light on the mystery.

    Angela's parents, Andrew and Florence, who lived in Hucclecote, died five months apart in 1993 and 1994, both in their nineties, still wondering what happened to their daughter.

    Florence held onto the belief that Angela was still alive and would one day return, and she gave Phil some money to pass on to Angela if she ever came back.

    Angela's weight had dropped to four and a half stone about a year before her disappearance, which was the main reason she was admitted to Coney Hill Hospital. She moved out of Coney Hill to a 'half way house' where she was living with other patients until her disappearance.
    snip

    On the evening she vanished she was relaxing with housemates but then suddenly said 'I'm late. I've got to go.' No-one knew what she could be late for or where she was going.

    Three months before her disappearance Angela had withdrawn £9,000 from her bank account. No explanation for that withdrawal, which was made while she was still in hospital, has ever been found.
    snip
    "We don't know what happened to her after that point and her body has never been found. We're not ruling out any possibilities – including the chance she started a new life in a different area or was the victim of foul play. We simply don't know at this moment so are keeping an open mind.

    Maybe something to do with family conflict?

    Angela Bradley

    Last seen on January 16, 1995

    MARRIED Angela was 34 when she was last seen, in her hometown of Abbeydale, Gloucs.

    Sister Brenda Gilder, 69, is convinced she is alive, and disappeared in order to escape their domineering mother.

    Brenda said: “Two years after she disappeared she left a message on my answerphone, in Latin. It said she was alive, but dead to the family.

    “She wanted to disappear, probably because of my mother. My mother was interfering in her marriage.” She added: “The police have always been very good.”

    Brenda wants to let Angela know their mother died two years ago, and to urge her to get in contact.

    The correct surname is Bradley. Ancestry has a marriage record of Angela P Miles to Stephen W Bradley in Gloucester in June 1981. Angela P Miles was born in Q4 1960. All this fits with the reported age and location, and since her brothers surname is Miles I assume these are the correct records.

    Given the comments of Angela's sister about the mother (who I think died circa 2013, not in the 90s) and her interference in the marriage it would be interesting to know the position of that marriage at the time of the disappearance. There seems to have been no comment in 20 years by the husband and I can find no divorce record (or remarriage). The domestic situation in 1995 is very unclear and may cast some light on the various possibilities.

    Thanks for the great information!
    Interesting that the husband apparently has not responded to the missing person appeal, as far as i know, and no body has been located to date.
    Wonder if Angela's mother might have been on to something?
    imo, speculation.

    Has anyone seen Angela's height listed?
