POLICE have today issued new CCTV pictures of people they believe may have seen Luke Durbin on the night of his disappearance.

Luke went missing after a night out in Ipswich on Thursday, May 11 and the last confirmed sighting of him was at Buttermarket bus station at about 4am the following day.

Despite numerous appeals for information about the 19-year-old's whereabouts, he is still missing today and police are pursuing any possible leads.

As revealed in The Evening Star earlier this month, police were planning to conduct another search for the teenager.

She said officers were now keen to speak to those seen on CCTV around the time of Luke's disappearance.

Two of the images show a person wearing a hooded coat and dark trousers walking around the corner of Fore Street, past the Spread Eadgle about 4.11am.

Another image, outside Tinkerbelle bridal shop in Tacket Street, shows a silver vehicle, possibly a Volvo or Mercedes, heading in the direction of the Spread Eagle about 4.09am.

Police also want to speak toa person carrying what appears to be a white carrier bag along Tacket Street, towards Dogs Head Street, about 4.16am and a figure seen near the Best Kebab shop, close to the pedestrian crossing.

They are also keen to trace people seen at the bus station between 4.30am and 4.40am.

These include a male with a back pack and several others who appear to be chatting and waiting for a bus.

Acting Detective Inspector Ian Addison, said: “We have said this before, but it doesn't matter if you think you saw nothing - we still need to speak to you.

“You may unwittingly have information that could move the inquiry forward and we'd ask you to call even though this may seem like a while ago.”

Anyone in the stills, or anyone with information should call Woodbridge police on 01473 613500.
