Police have arrested 11 people on suspicion of murder after a man's body was found in a shed in Birmingham.
The man has not yet been formally identified, but is believed to be a 34-year-old from the Yardley area, who went missing on Thursday lunchtime.
His body was found in a shed at a home in Carlton Road, Bordesley Green, at around 11.30pm on Friday.
Officers are appealing for information from anyone who may have seen his car - a white Toyota Yaris registration FM64 PHU.
The car was found about a mile away in Adderley Road on Friday.
Detective Inspector Warren Hines said 11 people are being questioned - five men aged 45, 33, 28, 24 and 23, four women aged 50, 41, 25 and 19, and two 15-year-old boys.
"We are currently treating his death as suspicious and we took swift action to arrest 11 people at the scene - who we believe were known to the man - on suspicion of his murder," he said.
"Our thoughts are with his family and friends at this difficult time as we enter the very early stages of a murder inquiry."
A post-mortem examination will be held later.
