Donavan Van Lil murder investigation

Wiltshire police have made a fresh appeal for help in connection with a missing Chippenham man.

Detectives believe Donavan Van Lil has been murdered, even though his body hasn't been found.

The rugby player was last seen in March and over 23,000 people have signed up to a Facebook campaign to help find him.

Now police have revealed they are looking for a blue car seen near Donavan's home twice on the day he went missing, they have also released CCTV footage of the fitness instructor at a local supermarket, in the hope it will jog people's memories.

Detective Superintendent Norman McKeaveney told Heart more about the new appeal:
