Supt Dave Johnson said: "There are a number of lines of inquiry that we are following at the moment in order to try and piece together what has happened to Tony, and his movements prior to his death.

"We have specialist officers supporting his family at this time and I would urge anyone with any information that could assist us with our inquiries to contact us, no matter how small they think it may be.

"It could be crucial to this investigation."
