Police believe a Lithuanian man from Wisbech who went missing a year ago today could have been murdered.

35-year-old Ricardas Puisys was last seen at his place of work at Nightlayer Leek Company in Chatteris.

Despite numerous appeals to find him - his disappearance remains a mystery.

"Ricardas' disappearance is a mystery. I am near positive that the answer to Ricardas' disappearance lies within the local community - someone knows what has happened to him and I urge them to do the right thing and come forward. Any information, no matter how small or insignificant it may seem, could be vital in our inquiry.

Police investigating the murder of a pensioner in Northampton are re-appealing for help to catch those responsible a year on.

David Brickwood was repeatedly stabbed at his home on Lindsay Avenue last September.

Detectives believe the 74 year old was targetted because he kept money in the house and was the victim of a botched burglary.

I believe someone targeted David, they planned to rob him and were prepared to use violence on an elderly man to get what they wanted. This was planned, which means it will have been talked about before the murder and almost certainly afterwards, when the people who did this, realised they had killed David.

Two Ford Focus cars seen near David's house on the night of his murder have not been located. Someone will have seen them, or know who was driving these in the area at the time.

David was defenceless in bed at his home when he was brutally attacked. His family are left with no answers and no justice. We know there are rumours and speculation locally. We know people have spoken to Crimestoppers, but we need the people who know what happened to David to contact us directly.
