Extradition proceedings are to begin to bring a teenager wanted in connection with the murder of an Essex man back to the UK.
Bradley Blundell, 18, handed himself in to a police station in Amsterdam yesterday evening, Saturday, March 31.
He was wanted for questioning in connection with the death of John Pordage, 34, who was shot in the chest in Baddow Road, Chelmsford, on August 5, 2017.
Police say they are no longer searching for Blundell and are preparing papers for his extradition back to the UK.
The search had been well publicised on social media, with a high-priority Facebook appeal launched by Essex police.
DCI Martin Pasmore, of the Kent and Essex Serious Crime Directorate, said: “A number of agencies both in the UK and abroad, including the National Crime Agency (NCA), have been involved in this search, and we extend our thanks for their welcome assistance.
“Mr Pordage’s family has been informed of the arrest.”
