"Do you remember seeing or hearing anything unusual in the area around the time in question? Did you see a man going into or leaving Doocot Park?

"I would also continue to urge anyone with dashcam footage of the area and surrounding streets captured between 11pm on Thursday and 1.30am on Friday to get in touch as soon as possible.

"A man we would like to speak to is aged in his twenties, of a slim build, around 5ft 7in to 6ft and was wearing a black hooded top.

"He was last seen walking into Doocot Park."
