A £10,000 reward is being offered for the capture of a man in connection with the brutal murder of a South Cheshire market trader.
Police are hunting 25 year old Christopher More, over the death of Brian Waters, of Mainwaring Close, Stapeley, Nantwich, who was battered to death with a blunt instrument on June 19.
The appeal was made in a bid to track More, well-known in Lymm and Manchester city centre, who fled to Marbella, Spain, 24 hours after the incident at Burnt House Farm, Tabley, near Knutsford.
Detective Chief Inspector Phil Jones, who is heading the investigation, said: 'We do not know if he is still in Spain, if he has returned to England, or if he is in another part of the world.
'We are appealing to people who go abroad to remember his face. If you see him, do not approach him but contact the police immediately.'
Mr Jones said the crime is being linked to the illegal drugs trade after a quantity of cannabis was recovered from the farm, which was rented by Mr Waters, 43, but unoccupied at the time of the attack.
He added: 'We would appeal to the drugs and criminal fraternity to come forward with information.'
Police also want to trace a red Mercedes convertible car which disappeared from Mr More's house in the Greater Manchester area on the day he went missing.
Three men have already been arrested in connection with the incident. James Stewart Raven, 43, from Radcliffe, Manchester, is accused of murder and the attempted murder of Suleman Razak, and the indecent assault of a woman, who cannot be named for legal reasons.
Otis Lee Matthews, 26, from Stretford, has been charged with murder, while John Wilson, of Stockport, is charged with murder and two counts of conspiring to cause GBH. Their trial begins on June 9.
