Det Ch Insp Ruth Mather said she wanted a "key witness" to come forward.

"I want to appeal to the witness we believe was in Hyde Lane in Gloucester [at about 16:30 GMT] to come forward. You may have crucial information and it's vital we speak to you," she said.

"We've released an image of the Audi A7 involved in this incident - did you see it in Gloucester on the evening of the incident, particularly in the Hyde Lane, Prince Street and Nettleton Road area between 5.15pm and 5.30pm?

"We think they are now likely to be in the Bristol area, possibly abandoned somewhere, and would urge people there to be on the lookout."
