SYLVIA STUART: Car details issued after disappearance and murder of husband Peter.
Police investigating the disappearance of Sylvia Stuart and the murder of her husband Peter have released pictures of the car used by the man they want to trace.
Suffolk detectives are working with international police forces to track down Ali Qazimaj, 42, who has been living in the Tilbury area of Essex.
He was identified as a suspect in the investigation on Sunday, 5 June.
His car - a Citroen C3 with the registration KR06 GHU - was found in Athol Terrace in Dover.
Police say Qazimaj was at the Port of Dover Ferry Terminal at around 6.30pm on Saturday 4 June.
It is believed he boarded a passenger ferry on his own on foot, and travelled to Calais in France.
Detectives know he had previously used the alias of Marco Costa, and they think he came to the UK following the conflict in the former Yugoslavia.

They are investigating his movements between the last sightings of the Stuarts at Pulham Market in Norfolk on Sunday 29 May, and him leaving the country on Saturday 4 June.
Anyone who saw his car in Suffolk or Essex between those dates is being asked to contact police.
Sylvia and Peter Stuart were reported missing on Friday, 3 June.
The body of Peter, 75, was found in woodland surrounding their home in Weybread in Suffolk that evening.
A post-mortem examination confirmed he had died from multiple stab wounds. 
Police have said there is "very little hope" that 69-year-old Sylvia Stuart will be found alive.

Detective Chief Superintendent Simon Parkes said: "We are gradually building a picture as we continue to make enquiries to trace Ali Qazimaj.
"New information is coming in all the time and this continues to be a fast-moving enquiry.
"Our enquiries continue to learn more about his roots and his links within the UK and overseas.
"We still need anyone who knows him, who may have spent time with him over the last few weeks or before this to get in touch and tell us more about his background so that we can trace his movements."
Mr Qazimaj is described as white, around 5ft 6ins tall, with brown eyes and dark brown greying hair.
Police are urging people not to approach him, but anyone who sees him should call 999 immediately. Anyone with information can contact Suffolk Police through the incident room on 01473 782000.
A 61-year-old man from Leicester, arrested on Sunday in connection with the murder of Peter Stuart has been bailed until Wednesday, 3 August.
