The man got off a coach at the city’s main coach station in Digbeth and walked towards Bordesley Street at around 10.15pm on Friday 27 February.

We need to speak to anyone who may have seen him on this journey and can help us piece together his last movements or saw him in or near the Bordesley Street car park that night. We also need to understand why he came to Birmingham so I’d urge anyone with information to call me.”

The man – described as being around 5ft 9in tall, of slim build, with a dark beard and he was dressed in a black coat and blue jeans – had been living in the Southall area of London, prior to travelling to Birmingham. The purpose of his journey is unknown and police have failed to locate any relatives living in the UK although family in Sri Lanka have been informed.

Please call Detective Sergeant Mick Perkins on 101 if you have ANY information.
