The investigation into how a Wadebridge man wound up dead on Perranporth brings in beach cleaners to help.

It is exactly two months since Alan Jeal was found with a sock stuffed in his mouth.

Detectives are trying to trace the 64 year old's jacket, ipod and bank cards.

Now Pirate FM has learnt St Agnes charity, Surfers Against Sewage, is joining the search.

Spokesman Dom Ferris said: "We've been asked by the police to ask any of our beach cleaners if they have any memory of finding any items like these - or if they come across them in the future.

"It's in the Perranporth area - but the nature of the sea means they could travel all across the coast.

"[Police requests like this] come in every now and then but this is the most notable of its kind. It would be great to use our extensive supporter base to help solve a crime of this magnitude. It's a pretty sad story."

Mr Jeal was captured on CCTV in Wadebridge the day before - and later in Truro.

But from there it is a mystery how he ended up dead on Perranporth.

Investigators say multiple injuries on his body are not consistent with drowning.

They want to hear from anyone who might have spoken to Alan in Truro on the evening of the 24th February.

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.”

Anyone with any information is asked to contact police on 101 or Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555111 quoting police ref. 381 of March 1st.
