Det Supt Malyn said: “It is vital that we trace this man as soon as possible as he could have important information to assist the investigation.

“We need to know if Claudia had any male friends, colleagues or acquaintances who were known to smoke in her car. From speaking to Claudia’s friends, it wasn’t unusual for people to smoke in her car or her home. Again, the elimination process is a simple one so we urge you to come forward.”
