Gardai on high alert amid fears on-the-run Belfast child killer John Clifford traveled to Dublin by train after ditching mobility scooter,
“He is 1.75 meters (5ft 7in) tall, of medium build with green eyes, fair hair and a fresh complexion.
“I’d again appeal to anyone who may have seen him, or who may have information about his whereabouts to contact us immediately . . . I’d also appeal directly to John to hand himself in.”
Cops yesterday released CCTV footage of him boarding a train at Belfast’s Lanyon Place (formerly Central) station at 1.05pm that afternoon. Clifford was riding a distinctive mobility three-wheeler, which alerted officers to his movements and has since been seized.
PSNI Detective Inspector Michael McDonnell said: “We’ve located the scooter John was using.
“We believe he boarded a train at 13.05 at Lanyon Place train station on Sunday, September 2.
“He was wearing a dark-colored beanie-style hat, with glasses and a dark, heavy coat and was carrying a dark-colored backpack.
Little Sue Ellen Clifford was just eight years old when she was dragged from her bed, raped, strangled and dumped by the field near her home in Newtownabbey, Co Antrim, in 1988.
