The family of a man from Hounslow who was found dead eight months after he went missing are appealing for help to find his killers

Mohammed Shah Subhani, who disappeared on the 7th of May, was discovered in wooded area in Beaconsfield last month.

His family are urging the public to come forward if they saw a black BMW X5 in Hedgerley Lane in the days after his disappearance.

A £20,000 reward has also been offered for any other information that leads to the arrest and conviction of those involved.

Anyone with any information about Shah’s disappearance is asked to contact police on 101, or via Twitter @MetCC. Please quote Operation Rockton.

To give information anonymously contact Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 or online.

Quirat, his elder sister, said: "What happened to Shah, no one deserves. The only thing we look forward to in our lives now is justice for him. For this reason, we beg you all to go back and try remember if there was anything suspicious you saw around Hedgerley Lane or Hounslow on or around the 7th of May last year. Was there something that you thought looked odd? Did you hear something? Did you find yourself questioning some activities taking place?

"We appeal to the public to please come forward and help justice to be served. Shah didn’t deserve this. No one deserves this. It is now up to you all to help us unveil the faces of the monsters who did this and get them behind bars forever."

Paying tribute to her brother, she recalled the moment that the family was forced to hear the devastating confirmation that the human remains found did belong to Shah.

"When this heartbreaking news was delivered, we felt as if someone had pulled the ground beneath us and we had been swallowed whole. We had waited in hope and prayed that one day, against all odds, Shah will walk through the door and all this would be over. Never did we think Shah would be discovered seven months later, just 15 miles away from home.

"It is beyond our imagination that something so horrific happened to our loving Shah. These monsters maliciously killed our brother mercilessly and disregarded his body in an isolated woodland. We couldn’t even have fathomed this in our worst nightmares. Not only was Shah robbed of life, but also robbed of a rightful burial.

"Shah was a loving and caring young man who had his whole life ahead of him. He always aspired to do well in life and made sure his friends and family around him felt loved. His four-month-old baby girl didn’t even get a chance to experience all the love her Dad had to give her, he was such an amazing son, brother and uncle, you can only imagine how much of an amazing Dad he would have been. Our hearts are broken, this pain will never go away."

Detective Chief Inspector Noel McHugh, from Specialist Crime, who is leading the investigation, said: “When I met with Shah’s family and broke this awful news to them, it was something that I hoped I would never have to do. It is incredibly brave of them to decide to speak publicly today, just a few days after what would have been Shah's birthday.

"I believe that Shah’s discovery is something that his killer(s) were confident would never happen. However, whilst this was the worst possible news for his loved ones, I believe it presents potential opportunities for our ongoing investigation.

“I think that this area is only familiar to a small group of people. It is fairly isolated and you would probably have to know it existed, as opposed to it being stumbled across. It is not visible to a passing motorist. As I mentioned previously, the wooded area had evidence of spent shotgun cartridges, these are not connected to Shah’s death, but I am keen to speak to people who use this area for such recreational activities, particularly if they were here in early May last year."
