Officials said they have identified Carr, who has links to Newcastle city centre, Jesmond and Sunderland as a key person in the case.

The 40-year-old’s death is being treated as suspicious.

Northumbria Police said they were called to a home on Brady Street at about 12.30 pm on Saturday where they found the woman’s body.

They are appealing for the public’s help to locate Carr.

Members of the public have been urged not to approach him if they see him as police believe he knows he is wanted and may be “actively evading arrest”.

Those who have seen him or know where he may be are urged to call 999 quoting crime number 143632K/22.
