Land near to Patricroft Railway station will be searched by British Transport Police officers as they assist police with this part of the search.

These searches say the police are as a result of in-depth CCTV and phone data enquiries that the detectives have located during the investigation.

“Similar to our previous locations in Salford that have been searched already in the last couple of weeks, you will see officers from our Tactical Aid Unit, Crime Scene Investigators, underwater search divers and also our canine units to ensure that we are using all of our policing capabilities in the force.”

Detective Superintendent Lewis Hughes from GMP’s Serious Crime Division and Senior Investigating Officer, said: “The scenes that we will be searching over the coming days have come to our attention through some exceptional detective work conducted by the investigation team.

“We know there will be some disruption to the local community as a result of searching other locations, but it is so important that we do this, we need to be able to provide Stuart’s family with the information they need to process this news.

“Our investigation is ongoing, we still have a lot of work to do and I hope the public can see the dedication and compassion that continues to be shown across the force by officers and staff who are either keeping the scene secure, searching for evidence or investigating this behind the scenes – we all have our part to play in getting justice for Stuart’s family and every search we conduct is one step closer to finding answers for them.”
