MURDER hunt detectives have issued a public plea for help after launching a hunt to find the person who killed Greenock man Adam Anderson.

The 22-year-old's death was declared a murder yesterday after a post-mortem examination was carried out.

Mr Anderson had been found seriously injured in a car park at the Broomhill Court high-rise block off Ann Street shortly before 4pm on Sunday.

He was rushed to Inverclyde Royal but sadly passed away a short time after arrival at the hospital.

The officer leading the murder inquiry believes local people could have key information to help them catch the young man's killer.

Detective Chief Inspector Stuart Grainger, leading the murder probe, said: "Our thoughts are very much with Adam’s family and friends at this difficult time.

"We are carrying out enquiries to establish the full circumstances which have led to Adam's death and I would urge anyone with information, no matter how small it may seem, to come forward.

"We are keen to speak to anyone who was in the area in Greenock during the afternoon on Sunday and may have seen or heard any disturbance to get in touch as soon as you can to help us identify whoever is responsible for Adam's death."

Officers have sealed off the area where Adam was found and they remained there throughout yesterday as the probe intensifies.

Flowers were among the tributes left at the scene by friends of the late Mr Anderson.

It is understood that a potential male suspect is being sought in relation to what happened.

A source told the Telegraph it is believed that a car may have been involved in the incident, which was first reported to police shortly before 4pm on Sunday.

Uniformed officers have conducted door-to-door enquiries as part of an overall CID-led investigation, while forensics experts have combed the car park for clues.

Detectives have now set up an online portal to encourage members of the public to submit information.

The Major Incident Public Portal website - - gives the public access to a form so they can send information directly to the major incident teams based at the Scottish Crime Campus.

Information can also be passed on by calling Police Scotland on 101, quoting reference 1625 of January 2 or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
