Police investigating the murder of a Lincolnshire man are trying to trace a number of his possessions.

The body of David Cowley, 67, of Broadfield Lane in Boston, was discovered in a quarry off Mareham Lane, Sleaford, on 17 November.

A 17-year-old has been charged with his murder and remanded in custody.

Officers said they would like information on a small gold signet ring set with a blue stone, a silver hip flask and an LG Chocolate mobile phone.

Police believe that the items may have been sold or discarded in the Sleaford area following the murder.

A second boy, also 17, was arrested in connection with the incident. He is currently on police bail until 7 January.

Anyone with any information on the items is asked to call Lincolnshire Police.
