Detectives in the Luke Durbin inquiry have re-issued CCTV images of a silver or white Volvo 440 which could hold the key to his disappearance.
The renewed appeal comes just days before the ninth anniversary of the 19-year-old’s last sighting during a night out in Ipswich.
The former Farlingaye High School pupil was out with friends on Thursday, May 11, 2006. He spent part of the evening in the former Zest nightclub in Princes Street with friends before trying to make his way home early the following morning.
Officers have plotted Luke’s route through Ipswich town centre towards Hawk Express taxi office in Old Foundry Road where he attempted to get a lift home.
He was last seen on CCTV walking across Dog’s Head Street in the direction of the bus station at 4am on May 12.
Despite numerous appeals by police and Luke’s family, including on BBC Crimewatch, and extensive inquiries over the past nine years, no trace of Luke has been found.
The Volvo 440 was seen in Orwell Place in Ipswich at 4.09am on May 12, 2006. Police are keen to trace the driver and any occupants of the vehicle.

Detective Superintendent John Brocklebank, head of Suffolk and Norfolk’s major investigation team, said: “We remain convinced that someone locally knows what has happened to Luke.
“Despite appeals we have not been able to trace the occupants of this car and we’re asking anyone who may be able to help to come forward. The type of car has been identified by the Transport Research Laboratory and we’d like to hear from anyone who knows someone who had access to a silver or white coloured Volvo 440 around May 2006 who may have been in Ipswich around 4am that day.”
Anyone with information should telephone police on 01473 668999 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
