    Dunedin murder 'item of interest' found

    Police have confirmed that they've found an "item of interest" relating to the alleged murder of a Dunedin teenager.

    Police have found an item of interest relating to the alleged murder of a Dunedin teenager.

    Amber-Rose Rush, 16, was found at a house in Clermiston Avenue, in the suburb of Corstorphine, on Saturday.

    A man, believed to be a doctor, has been arrested and charged with murder following the teen's death.

    Police have been searching the Blackhead Road area and Blackhead Quarry this week and confirmed on Thursday that they found an item of interest, Detective Senior Sergeant Rob Hanna said.

    They are also wanting to identify the occupants of a dark coloured vehicle that was at the carpark of the Blackhead Quarry on February 2 and 3, Det Snr Sgt Hanna said.

    The vehicle is believed to be a Toyota Camry or similar and the occupants may be able to assist with the investigation, he said.

    Police are also interested in any sightings of a silver two-door BMW that is believed to have travelled from Dunedin to Balclutha between midnight and about 2am on February 3.

    The man, 30, charged with murder will next appear in the High Court at Dunedin on February 20.
