POSTERS are being put up in Epping Forest and in the Midlands in the hunt for the East London restaurant worker believed to have been kidnapped six weeks ago.
The posters show Mahmood Ahmad with an appeal for witnesses and information after he disappeared from Whitechapel’s Lahore Kebab House at Umberston Street on March 6.
Detectives believe he was kidnapped outside his home in Watford, Herts, in the early hours of the next day, March 7.
Investigations have led to inquiries being made in Leicester, where posters are being distributed. The posters are also being displayed in the visitor areas of Epping Forest following the discovery of Mahmood’s severed thumb on March 10 in Ilford, just five miles away.
