Detective Inspector Justine Jenkins, from the unit, said: “As part of our investigation we would like to speak to anyone who saw the pictured vehicle in the Cat Ditch Road area. Please take a look at the image and get in touch if you saw it.

“We believe there are a few vehicles of this type in the local area and so I would like to stress that we know the owner of this particular vehicle. I particularly want to ask anyone who was driving in the area with a dash cam to check their footage and get in touch if you spot the vehicle.

“If you have any other information that you think may help our investigation, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.”

The body Ms Greenwood was found in a small car park area between Roe Green and Wallington around 8pm on Tuesday (November 14).
