DETECTIVES leading the Milly Dowler murder hunt are still probing links between her death and 'bus stop' killer Levi Bellfield.

Police investigating the Walton schoolgirl's killing six years ago received a massive response to a fresh appeal on the BBC's Crimewatch show on Monday.

There has been mounting speculation about Bellfield's involvement in the murder of the Walton schoolgirl following his conviction last month.

And during an interview on the programme, Det Chief Insp Maria Woodall said: "I'm certainly very interested in Levi Bellfield."

She also said it was likely someone else may have been involved in the crime, either in the disposal of the car, her belongings or even her body.

As we went to press police had received nearly 50 calls, with several said to be 'potentially significant'.

Bellfield (left) was jailed for life for the murder of two women and the attempted murder of a third, former Gumley House head girl Kate Sheedy.

Milly, 13, was last seen at just past 4pm on March 21, 2002, as she made her way home from Walton train station along Station Avenue.

Her remains were found in woodland in Hampshire six months later on September 18.

Surrey Police believes a red Daewoo Nexia captured on CCTV soon after she went missing could have been used to abduct Milly and dispose of her body.

Its registration is N503 GLT and chassis number is KLATF68V1SB554108.

Officers believe the car may have been re-sprayed, scrapped, or someone may be driving it with false plates.

Last month, a 34-year-old Hounslow man believed to be a friend of Bellfield, who grew up in the area, was arrested on suspicion of dumping the car. He was bailed to return for further questioning.
