Help Needed Tracing Last Steps

The family of  a dead man have made an appeal to trace the last known movements of Plymouth man Cheng Somers. 

36-year old Mr Somers, (also known as Valan Pitts), from Wyndham Square, Plymouth, went missing from his home on Tuesday, July 24. 

His body was found at Winner Street, Paignton, on Thursday August 22, 2012. 

However, the last known movements of Mr Somers were at Paignton Railway Station on Wednesday, July 25. 

Police have today released CCTV footage from the railway station and also from the Wants second hand store in Plymouth City Centre in a bid to jog the public's memory as to whether they may have seen Mr Somers on July 24 or 25.

Extensive police enquiries have already mapped a number of movements from Mr Somers on July 24 and 25 across Plymouth and then Paignton, but are keen to hear from anyone who may have further information.

There is currently an ongoing independent IPCC investigation into the way police dealt with contact relating to Mr Somers on July 24 and 25, but this is not directly connected to the investigation into Mr Somers death.
