“Last night, officers revisited the scene of the incident. Over 70 people took the time to speak with officers and we are grateful for their assistance. Officers will assess all information received to determine if it can assist with the ongoing investigation.

“We would continue to ask local residents in that area to check their gardens and bins for any item of discarded clothing which they do not recognise as belonging to them.

Anyone with information that may assist, no matter how insignificant it may seem, should contact Renfrew Police Office through 101.
