Mr Whelan is known to have links in Cardiff and is understood to work as a personal trainer, so might be known to gym users in Kidderminster and Cardiff, said police.

The public are advised not to approach Mr Whelan directly, but to call police immediately if they have any information about his whereabouts.

Two other men from Cardiff, aged 19 and 35, who were arrested in connection with the death have been released on police bail.
