Fresh appeal for Donavan

Police have renewed appeals for information to the whereabouts of Donavan van lill. The 29 year old hasn't been seen since 3rd March. On Sunday 21st March Martin David Sugden, aged 41, from Stanton, nr Chippenham was charged with the murder of Donovan. He appeared before Bristol Crown Court on Tuesday, 6th April 2010, and was remanded to appear back at court on Monday 5th July 2010.

Police have carried out and are continuing with searches in the Stanton St Quinton area for Donovan's body over previous weeks. Last week officers worked in the Olympiad leisure centre in Chippenham (where Donovan worked) and at Corsham Rugby Club across the weekend (where he played) in order to speak to staff and members of the public who use the facilities and who may have important information that could assist the investigation.

Wiltshire Police are keen to talk to anybody who was in the area of Stanton and Startley on Wednesday March 3rd 2010 and anybody who may have used the 'honesty box' outside the home of Martin Sugden, in Stanton, on that day to buy farm produce from those premises.

Detective Superintendent Norman McKeaveney said:
"This continues to be an in-depth and methodical investigation and I am continuing to appeal to anyone with any information on Donovan's disappearance to contact the police or Crimsestoppers, no matter how small a piece of information they think it may be, let us be the judge of that."

Meanwhile Corsham rugby club say they'll play in black for the rest of the season in memory of their player Donavan van Lill.  His number 13 shirt won't be used again either.
