A father is being sought by police after his daughter was found murdered in a house in Nottinghamshire.

Terence Rodgers is being hunted after Chanel Taylor, 23, was found shot in the head in Huthwaite on Friday.

The 55-year-old, who has not been seen since the killing, is described as white, 5ft 10in, stocky and balding.

Mrs Taylor's body was discovered by her husband who had married her just seven weeks ago. Her father gave her away at the wedding in Mansfield.

Mr Rodgers had been living at the couple's house in New Street, where her body was found at about 1300 BST on Friday.

Tattooed father

Mr Rodgers' cherry-red Peugeot 106 was found on Saturday in Victoria Street, Hucknall.

Police have made a direct plea to him to come forward to help them with their enquiries.

Members of the public have been warned not to approach Mr Rodgers, but contact police immediately, if they spot him.

Mr Rodgers has a tattoo of a flower on his right forearm and a dagger and the name "Christine" tattooed on his left forearm, police said.

Insp Barry Harper, from Nottinghamshire Police, said: "We do desperately need to talk to him and urge him to give himself up to police officers.

"As Mr Rodgers was living at the address prior to the incident we believe he must have vital information and we need to speak to him as an urgent priority."
