The snapshot below shows an unknown man standing beside a 4x4 parked on the victim's drive just yards away from the caravan. The owner of the stolen vehicle spotted a potential suspect while looking at his house on Google Street View. The white Abbey Adventura caravan was towed away by the thief from Cauldwell Road, Linton, Derbys, between 9.30am and 2pm on June 5 last year.

PC Adrian Mason, investigating officer, said the victim hadn't recognised the man or the dark green Vauxhall seen on Street View. He said: "It's amazing that we've such a clear image of a man who we think will be able to give us information that would help the police inquiry.

"It was an amazing coincidence that the Google Street View car was passing at that time.

"I've made extensive enquiries since the image was discovered but because the registration plate of the 4x4 is blanked out we've been unable to trace the man through his car. That is why we're appealing for the public's help."
