Police search land near M4

Police looking for a Wiltshire man who has been missing for nearly a year have been searching land next to the M4.

29 year old Donavan Van Lill was last seen in Chippenham in March 2010 and although a man has been charged with murder, his body has never been found.

Police closed the inside lane on the motorway eastbound on Saturday as they checked an area of land near junction 17.

The search has now finished and police are continuing with their investigation.

42 year old Martin David Sugden, from Stanton St Quinton, appeared in court in July and pleaded not guilty to murdering Donavan Van Lill, his trial begins in March.
