Police hunting for Alice Gross 'search for missing man'

Police hunting for schoolgirl Alice Gross want to trace a 41-year-old man who's been missing for nearly two weeks. Arnis Zalkalns was last seen at home in Ealing on Wednesday, 3 September.

It is completely out of character for Arnis to go missing. His family is very worried about him. I am asking for anyone who has seen him, or knows where he is to get in touch.

Given the time that Arnis was last seen, and that he travels to work along a similar route to the one we know Alice took on the 28 August I am really keen to speak to him. At this stage, we simply want to speak to him, as he may well have important information that can help our search for Alice.

I would stress that based on what we know now there is no evidence to suggest that Arnis and Alice knew each other. This continues to be a fast moving investigation, and this is one of a number of lines of enquiry that we are urgently looking into.
