“We might like to reassure folks that we have professional research teams running a comprehensive search of local locations and would ask members of the public to not try to search for Charles, out of your property, themselves.

“This is indeed teams can accurately track all places which were police hunted to a professional standard and so possible tracking can be run by research dogs.

“We again appeal for anybody with information and ask residents to look at their outbuildings for any indications that somebody could have been sheltering there or even to get lost items.
