The family of a missing Bristol DJ is on alert after a man who looks strikingly similar was photographed at Waterloo station on Monday night (21st December).
74-year-old Derek Serpell-Morris has been missing since July. His family have spent months taking to the streets and spreading the word on social media to try and find him.
They are believed to be taking this latest lead seriously due to the similarities - and the fact that the man is wearing clothes similar to ones the DJ is known to have owned.
Avon and Somerset Police are still investigating - and have appealed again for anyone with new information to come forward.
Missing DJ Derek's family believe they have found a new lead in the case. Almost three months have passed since 73-year-old Derek Serpell-Morris was last seen and despite a massive public campaign, his location remains a mystery.
But his family have found a map in his home which they believe may provide a link to his whereabouts.
Avon and Somerset police have said the case of missing DJ Derek is still open and still want anyone with information to come forward.
It comes after the family of 73-year-old Derek Morris were told police have stopped searching for him.
The campaign group 'find DJ Derek' say his family have been told that the police have stopped looking for the missing Bristol DJ.
73-year-old Derek Morris has been missing for two months. In a statement posted on Facebook, the group say there has been a "shocking" lack of police support, and call on friends and supporters to help the search effort.
They say police have called off the search until there is further evidence.
The family of DJ Derek Morris today resumed their efforts to find the legendary pensioner from Bristol.
Their search has moved to Thornbury in South Gloucestershire. Police believe he took a bus there on 11 July, the morning after his last sighting at a pub in St Pauls.
DJ Derek's great niece Jennifer Griffiths is leading the search of a stream in the town. They are prepared to go to any lengths to find him. Here she speaks from the heart:
Family and friends of the missing Bristol DJ, Derek Morris, have been carrying out fresh searches, more than a month after the 73-year-old was reported missing.
They have moved their attentions to a stream in Thornbury as police believe Derek may have taken the 10.32am number 78 bus from Bristol to Thornbury on Saturday, July 11.
DJ Derek's great niece told ITV News that her family will not give up until they find out what happened to him.
Avon and Somerset Police now believe that missing DJ Derek may have taken the number 78 bus from Bristol to Thornbury on the night he went missing.
The 73-year-old was last seen on CCTV leaving The Criterion Pub in Ashley Road at 00.13 am on July 11th 2015.
Officers now believe that Derek may have taken the 10.32am bus from Bristol to Thornbury that evening.
This would mean Derek would have arrived in the Thornbury area between 11.20am and 12 noon.
Police are now focussing their search in that area.

The family of missing DJ Derek Morris have once again taken to the streets of Bristol to look for him.
The 73-year-old was last seen leaving the Criterion pub in St Pauls five weeks ago. His great niece has organised a team leafleting homes the area to see if anyone remembers seeing him or has any clues to his whereabouts.
Jennifer Griffiths is not giving up, despite the fact that it's been so long without news.
