Police were snapped using specialist infrared cameras close to Libby’s student digs as the massive hunt continues.

They also used a ladder and camera mounted on a 20ft pole to check guttering on the home belonging to Polish butcher Pawel Relowicz, 24.

The house, which he shares with his wife, Jagoda, 24, and two kids, is less than a mile from where Libby was last seen sat on a park bench.

Dad-of-two Relowicz was arrested and quizzed for 36 hours on suspicion of abducting Libby but was instead charged with voyeurism, outraging public decency and three counts of burglary.

They relate to other cases not linked to Libby and he was remanded in custody to appear at Hull Magistrates Court today.


He still remains under investigation in connection with the 21-year-old’s disappearance.

His silver Vauxhall Astra was seized by cops and has since been subjected to a thorough forensic examination.

Officers also took away a computer for examination.

Forensic officers concluded their searches on the property yesterday and steel shutters have since been put up on the front door to prevent possible vandalism.

Hi-tech infrared cameras are capable of detecting people who may be hidden or partially obscured by cover.

It is also equipped with an audio microphone that allows an operator to listen for signs of a hidden subject.

Senior cops are still treating Libby’s disappearance as a missing persons inquiry.


A huge search was launched after Libby vanished when she was turned away from a nightclub for being too drunk.

The second-year philosophy undergraduate was put in a taxi and was last seen on a park bench near her student digs at 11.45pm.

CCTV footage showed a woman believed to be Libby getting into a car and being driven away at 12.09am.

In separate footage revealed by The Sun, a similar car was seen being driven half a mile away ten minutes later.

February 10: Pawel Relowicz is charged with voyeurism & indecency and remains under investigation over the disappearance. The outraging public decency offence allegedly took place on January 19, 2019, and the charge of voyeurism was reported on December 26, 2018. The three burglaries allegedly took place between December 2017 and January 2019.

A woman living close to where Libby was last seen later described hearing “bloodcurdling screams” at 12.30am – around 20 minutes after she vanished.

After she was reported missing, cops searched a river and pond close to her home but no trace has been found.

Bins, drains and gardens were also combed by officers but searches have so far proved fruitless.
