The 19-year-old’s body was found in Epping Forest
The 19-year-old went missing after leaving his family home in the Ladbroke Grove area of Kensington in west London on the evening of Monday, 22 March.
He was reported missing on Wednesday, 24 March.
His body was found in a lake in Epping Forest just over a week later.
Detectives are yet to determine a cause of death.
The Independent Office for Police Conduct previously said they were going to address complaints made by Richard’s mother about the way in which she was initially treated by the police and how her reports about the disappearance of her son were handled.
Richard’s mother, Evidence Joel, said at one point she was told to stop calling police.
Speaking in April, she said: “I was a joke. They treated me like I was one lunatic. I feel so discriminated.”
A spokesperson for the Independent Office for Police Conduct said: “We can confirm that we have served misconduct notices on two members of Metropolitan Police Service staff as there is an indication that they may have failed to pass on new and relevant information relating to Richard Okorogheye to the team responsible for conducting missing person assessments.
“The serving of misconduct notices does not mean that disciplinary proceedings will follow.”
