Officers Search Underground Car Park in Naheed Khan Investigation

Police are conducting searches in a disused underground car park on Marton Road in Middlesbrough today, in the hope of gleaning further information which could help trace Naheed Khan, 43.

Search The searches will be taking place along with help from Cleveland Fire Brigade who attended the scene of the search to assist with allowing officers access into the site.

Detectives have released photographs of the search location, which are taking place near to one of the last possible sightings of Naheed, which was at the cash machine outside Adils Pizzeria (part of Whitfield Buildings) in Middlesbrough on 6th May at 5:04pm.

Senior Investigating Officer, Temporary Detective Chief Inspector, Mark Dimelow said: “Our team of dedicated officers are pursuing thousands of lines of enquiry, seven days a week in a bid to trace Naheed.

“This search location forms part of the investigation as Naheed was possibly last seen near here. For operational reasons, we cannot go into specific details into the nature of the search, but we can provide an update once it is complete.

“We would like to thank Cleveland Fire Brigade for working with us today and to those people who have come forward with information so far. All information is vital to us, no matter how insignificant you think it may be, and we would still urge people to come forward if they have any knowledge of Naheed’s last movements or whereabouts.”

Last month, officers arrested a 39-year-old man in connection with the disappearance of Naheed Khan and he has been released under investigation pending further enquiries.
