Search is on for 'gold-toothed' man with links to MK in connection with murder

Members of the public are being offered a £5,000 reward for information which leads to the arrest of a 'gold-toothed' man wanted in connection with a murder.

28-year-old Abdi Ali, who is originally from Somalia, is wanted in connection with the murder of Shaun Lyall in Cleethorpes, who was found dead on Sidney Street on 17th July this year.

Humberside Police have so far arrested four people in connection with his death. One has been released on bail, two released under investigation and one released unconditionally.

Ali has connections to Milton Keynes, as well as the Grimsby area, Lancashire, South Yorkshire, Merseyside, Manchester, Lincolnshire and Cleveland.

Police officials have said he is quite recognisable as he has a distinctive gold tooth at the front of his mouth. 

Crimestoppers have offered a reward of up to £5,000 to anyone who can give information to the charity about Abdi Ali’s whereabouts. They can be contacted anonymously on 0800 555 111 or via their anonymous online form.

The reward came into effect on 3rd August and expires on 3rd November 2018. 

Detective Chief Inspector Stewart Miller, who is in charge of the investigation for Humberside Police, said: “We are very keen to find Abdi Ali in connection with the death of Shaun Lyall."

“Since we launched our appeal we’ve received a number of new pieces of information which we’re now following up."

“We need that information to keep coming in, and we’re actively working with other police forces across the UK in our search for Abdi Ali."

“I’d like to thank the support from the public so far, our regional and national press, and our followers on social media for their help so far in sharing this appeal."

“We don’t believe Abdi Ali to be a risk to the wider public, but we suggest you do not approach him if you see him as he could be dangerous when challenged."

“If you see him, I would advise that you call the police on 101 immediately."

“He is a significant suspect in this murder enquiry. This was a particularly brutal attack on Shaun Lyall in Cleethorpes on 17 July and we need to find him."

“If you have information in relation to the reward offered by the charity Crimestoppers, please call them directly on 0800 555 111 or use their online form."
