While he was in the takeaway he went to sit with a group of people who have not yet been traced. This group are sought as witnesses and police need to speak to them.

The group included a man who is described as black and wore a distinctive black T-shirt with ‘Death’, the Roman numerals ‘LXXVIII’ and the number ‘78’ in large white letters on the back and a white motif on the front.

He appears to be shorter than Corrie, under around 5ft 10ins tall, and had short dark hair. He leaves the takeaway with Corrie, before Corrie is seen on CCTV walking towards Brentgovel Street on his own.

There is no suggestion there was any contact after this, but police need to talk to anyone who spoke to Corrie in the hours before he disappeared. At this time this group are the last known to have been in conversation with him.
