DCI Colin Sutton and his team are trying to identify the white van they have discovered from an extensive trawl of CCTV images. But there are 25,000 possible vans that need to be checked and eliminated.
DCI Colin Sutton is due to fly to Spain with his wife. But Detective Sergeant Jo Brunt calls to report the team may have found the van. He cancels the trip to Spain and returns to the investigation, only to discover it is not the suspect van. Colin turns his attention to files of witness statements taken from the public. Colin finds a statement from a former partner of Levi Bellfield, which says that Bellfield hates women, is violent and drives a white van.
DCI Colin Sutton mounts a surveillance operation on Bellfield, becoming deeply concerned that they need to arrest him soon to prevent him from attacking again. Colin also discovers that Bellfield once lived close to the site of the disappearance of Milly Dowler in 2002. He gives this information to an old colleague in Surrey police, the force who are investigating Milly’s murder.
