Northampton murder detectives seek car as 'priority'

Police looking for a businessman over the murder of a family of four in Northampton have renewed their appeal for sightings of a missing car.

The silver five-door Vauxhall Corsa is believed to have been taken by suspect Anxiang Du, 52, from Coventry.

Despite appeals over the car, which has the registration BG60 PMO, little information is known, police said.

Det Sup Glyn Timmins said finding the car would be a "vital step" in trying to trace Mr Du.

Detectives said that "finding the car is a key priority".

"The lack of Automatic Number Plate Recognition hits made on the vehicle is still puzzling for the major investigation team," Mr Timmins said.

"I am keen to focus in particular at anyone who works within public car parks, owns or runs car parks, anyone who issues tickets or is involved in towing away cars.

"Although it is impossible to say where the car currently is, there is a strong possibility that it has been abandoned in a car park somewhere, not making it immediately identifiable to people."
