They are keen to speak to a "Good Samaritan" who helped Jason on the night he disappeared.

Supt Andy McDyer said: "We still need to speak to the man who helped Jason and I would urge him to contact us as soon as possible."

The Good Samaritan is described as being around 20-years-old, 5ft 8", of stocky / athletic build, with short light blond or ginger hair.

Last night officers handed out hundreds of pictures of Jason to people socialising in the city centre, a week after he disappeared.
