Police today resumed a murder hunt after a dramatic new twist, in the case of a missing timeshare salesman who vanished without trace 15 years ago.

Kevin John Palmer, pictured right, is thought to have been killed but his body has never been found.

Today the mystery could finally be solved as detectives continue searching the garden of a former Hampshire pub for human remains.

This morning, Gordon Road in Fareham is already a hive of activity as police arrive back at the scene.

A police dog barks as it eagerly waits to help with the excavation of the former pub's garden.
