“Did you see anyone on the slip road or the motorway on foot? If so, you could hold important information about what has happened to this man.

“As well as appealing for any witnesses to contact us, we also want to hear from any drivers who were in the area at the time and may have dash-cam footage that could assist with the investigation.

“The slip road is now open and traffic has returned to normal.”
