Detectives have re-released CCTV pictures over the body on the beach at Perranporth.

Police are treating Alan Jeal's death as murder, after he was found with a sock in his mouth in February.

The 64 year old from Wadebridge was spotted at a bus stop in Truro the night before.

Police want to trace other people seen on the footage.

The images show a man matching Alan Jeal's description talking to someone at a bus stop at 6.45pm on Monday 24 February at Lemon Quay bus station, Truro.
Two other people were also waiting for the bus, destined for Perranporth, at the same time.

DCI Dave Thorne, Senior Investigating Officer, said: "The people seen at the bus stop have not come forward, maybe because they have not seen the original appeal. They could hold vital information about his plans for that evening and we would urge them to get in touch.
"We are also keen to speak to anyone who saw him in Perranporth that evening, whether getting off the bus, walking around the town or near the beach."
Officers are also keen to locate the light-blue jacket Alan was seen wearing in the city that evening.
A dark navy-blue jacket, belonging to Alan, was found on Perranporth beach close to where his body was found but the light-blue jacket has not been found.
DCI Thorne added: "It appears Alan had two blue jackets and we are keen to trace the lighter-coloured one he was seen wearing in Truro on the day before his body was found. He may have had the dark blue jacket in his rucksack."
Anyone with any information that could assist the investigation is asked to call police on 101 quoting log 381 of 1 March.
