A man arrested on suspicion of the murder of Rikki Neave has been re-bailed to September 20.
The man in his 30s, who would have been a teenager at the time of the killing in 1994, was first arrested in April.
Detectives investigating the murder of six-year-old Rikki first arrested the man on Tuesday April 19 at an address in Peterborough.
He was originally released on police bail until June 15 and has now been re-bailed to three months time.
Rikki was last seen leaving for school at around 9am on the morning of November 28.
His body was found in a wooded area of Eye Road, close to Willoughby Court at 12.05pm the following day - five minutes' walk from his house in the Welland Estate.
A post mortem examination concluded that Rikki had died as a result of a compression of the neck – strangulation.

In June last year (2015), officers from the three-force Major Crime Unit relaunched the investigation into Rikki's murder with a team of dedicated officers and specialists assigned.
Over the past year officers have been methodically building a timeline of Rikki's last movements and made a national appeal for help via the BBC's Crimewatch programme.
