Detective Inspector Stuart May from Thames Valley Police said:

“I am aware the location is popular with dog walkers, and I would like to appeal to anybody that was in the local area between 4pm and 5pm and witnessed any unusual or suspicious activity to please contact the force on 101, quoting incident reference 1589 of 11 October.

“You can also speak to any of our officers who are at the scene, or for 100 per cent anonymity, call the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.

“You will notice an increased presence of police officers in the local area while our enquiries continue and anyone with any concerns can speak to one of our officers.

“I would also appeal to anybody who was driving in the general area of North Town Moor, to please check their dash-cam footage and get in touch with us if it has captured anything that may assist this investigation.

“We are in the very early stages of this investigation and are making local house to house enquiries and reviewing CCTV from the area.”
