Police investigating the suspected hit and run of an Alzheimer's sufferer in Lowestoft have identified and seized a vehicle.
Brian Mitchell, of Lowestoft, was found on the side of the High Street at 12.50am on Wednesday, November 15, after being struck by a vehicle.
The 86-year-old is currently recovering at James Paget University Hospital in Gorleston with a broken wrist and fractured kneecap.
Mr Mitchell was diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease in January and has been unable to describe the incident to police due to his condition.
Graham Mitchell, his son, is once again appealing for members of the public to come forward and aid the investigation.
He said: 'If anybody can remember anything from that night, even the slightest thing, please tell the police.
'It will kill me if the person responsible gets away with it.'
