Ali is originally from Somalia and has links to the Grimsby area, Lancashire, South Yorkshire, Merseyside, Manchester, Milton Keynes, Lincolnshire, and Cleveland.

He is said to be quite recognisable as he has a distinctive gold tooth at the front of his mouth.

Earlier this month Detective Chief Inspector Stewart Miller, who is in charge of the investigation, said: "We are very keen to find Abdi Ali in connection with the death of Shaun Lyall.

"If you see him, I would advise that you do not approach him and call the police on 101 immediately.

"If you have information in relation to the reward offered by the charity Crimestoppers, please call them directly on 0800 555 111 or use their online form."
