Text:Police investigating the murder of celebrity designer David McNee are asking the public to report any sightings of his car, a black Audi TT convertible which was taken from McNee's home. McNee was last seen on Sunday driving through Ponsonby, where he called out to friends from his car. The car was found dumped nearby after the discovery of McNee's body in the bedroom of his St Mary's Bay home, and showed signs of being taken for an off-road joyride. Detective Sergeant Lance Burdett says the car was driven around for quite some time, and called on the public to report any sightings of it being driven around greater Auckland since Sunday. A positive sighting of the car in Papatoetoe has already been reported. The media are continuing to hound police about McNee's supposed “cruising lifestyle”, but Burdett reiterated yesterday, "At this stage we deal in fact only. We deal with whatever we see as it happens. In this instance we're still carrying out inquiries into his background and behaviour."
