Detective Chief Inspector Ian Saunders is leading the investigation.

I am extremely keen for any sightings of Graham Anderson with the two children between Saturday 25 August and Saturday 1 September.

He was a regular bus user and I now need to trace his movements, and those of the boys during the week leading up to the discovery of their bodies at lunchtime yesterday.
