Detective Chief Inspector Noel McHugh of the Homicide and Major Crime Command, said: “Our investigation into Mohammed’s disappearance continues and this warrant will hopefully provide us with further information about what has happened to him.

“Although we have previously recovered his white Audi Q3, I would like to repeat my request for the public’s help to track its movements. It was captured on CCTV the day he went missing and was located by officers – on cloned plates – on 19 June. Where has it been?

“Three men were seen running from the car that day. Who were they? The fact they were in possession of a car belonging to a missing person is not a positive position to be in, however I would urge them to come forwar
