"The police have produced a identikit of the person, based on witness information, and the police are interested in the man who could provide important information on this incident," Saulius Gagas, chief of Vilnius County Chief Police Commissariat, told a press conference on Thursday.

The identikit was shown during the press conference, and Gagas stressed that the man is not a suspect but "a person who might have important information about this incident".

Asked whether the man could have been a kidnap witness, Gagas reiterated that "this man might have important information to check information about the incident on Sausio 13-osios Street".

The Vilnius police chief also said the police are now following all lines of inquiry, including a false report.

"We are following all lines of inquiry and cannot discard them as yet," he said.
