Police are continuing their search for 55-year-old Ian John McLoughlin after a man, now known to be in his 60s, was found murdered in Little Gaddesden yesterday.

Officers have given an updated description of the man they are hunting:

He is described as being a white male, around 6ft tall with greying hair. That day he was believed to be wearing sunglasses, blue jeans or possibly three quarter length trousers and a dark, blue, light blue and white checked short sleeved shirt with a button down collar. He is of average build.

We also believe that he is in possession of a large amount of £50 and £20 notes which he may be using to pay for purchases. It is a substantial amount which he could be trying to conceal.
