Police have released more details about the movements of a man suspected of the murder of a 17-year-old boy in Cheltenham. The suspect is believed to have left the scene of the murder on a bike and travelled to Buckingham Avenue and Clevedon Square. He may have been on foot for part of the journey before getting into a silver Vauxhall Astra (registration number W488 XOB) in Clevedon Square and driving at speed through Cheltenham.

The lead detective in charge of the investigation says that for operational reasons the name of the suspect is not being released publicly at this time although an appeal is being made directly to anyone who is protecting him. Detective Inspector Ruth Mather said:

"We know that this person's name is out there on the streets. I am convinced someone knows where he is and who is protecting him. Please do the right thing and call us. If you don't want to speak to us you can call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 and stay anonymous. To the wider public I would ask anyone who was in the area at the time of the murder and remembers seeing either a man riding a bike nearby or this silver Astra being driven around to call us straight away. You could have a vital clue for us and we need to hear from you."
