THE search for a murdered man’s dismembered body has moved to Calderdale.
Police divers have been combing the River Calder in Brighouse and the Calder and Hebble Navigation near the town’s Anchor Bridge looking for Adam Vincent’s missing body parts, including his head.
An investigation into the death of the 33-year-old from Grimsby was launched last month after a leg, arm and his torso were found at Tetney Lock in Grimsby.
Officers moved thesearch to West Yorkshire after a reported sighting of a white Ford Transit in Colne Bridge, Huddersfield – the same kind of vehicle believed to have been used to dispose of his body.
Five men have appeared in court in Grimsby accused of conspiracy to murder.
A spokesman for Humberside Police said: “Officers are still carrying out searches in the West Yorkshire area working with local officers.
“We are determined to do everything in our power to locate Mr Vincent’s remains.”
Mr Vincent was described as a polite man and talented artist who could often be seen sitting outside shops and banks in Grimsby town centre, sometimes sketching.
Police are appealing for anyone with information to contact Humberside Police on 0845 6060222 or by CrimeStoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.”
