Detectives investigating the murder of a man in Derby have issued a photo of the model of car they want to trace.

Geoff Seggie, 59, was found dead at his house in Marylebone Crescent, Mackworth, on the afternoon of Thursday, December 1.

His car – a black Honda Civic Sport, registration FH04 YCP – was missing from the address and has not yet been located.

Detectives are keen to find the vehicle and believe it may have been driven to the Cardiff area, potentially arriving at about 1.30pm on Thursday afternoon.

A photo has now been issued of the exact model of car and police are appealing for the public’s help in locating it.

Detective Inspector Emlyn Richards, who is leading the investigation, said: “We are turning to the public for help in what is a very fast-moving murder investigation.

“Mr Seggie was a father-of-two who was found dead in his home, and we have a dedicated team of detectives working tirelessly to find those responsible.

“Finding Geoff Seggie’s car is a crucial part of that investigation and we want to hear from anyone who might know where it is.

“It is a black Honda Civic Sport of the 2004 shape, and although we believe it was in Cardiff on Thursday afternoon, we do not know where it is now.

“I would urge anyone who has seen a car matching the one in the photo to get in touch. It may be parked somewhere out of place or appear abandoned, or at least untouched in a few days.

“No matter how insignificant you think the information is, we want to hear from you urgently.”

Anyone who knows where the vehicle might be should call Derbyshire police on 101, quoting incident 435 of December 1.

You can also give information anonymously by calling Crimestoppers, the independent charity, on 0800 555 111.
