CCTV footage of the last-known movements of murdered schoolgirl Lucy McHugh will be screened to thousands in the latest appeal by police.
The body of the 13-year-old was discovered in woodland at Southampton Sports Centre at 7.45am on July 26. She had been stabbed to death.
She was last seen leaving her home in Mansel Road East the previous morning.
Police will be handing out leaflets to fans arriving at Southampton Football Clubs match against Burnley at the citys St Marys Stadium on Sunday, before playing the CCTV footage.
Detective Superintendent Paul Barton, of Hampshire police, said: More than 200 members of the public have been in touch with information so far, but we know theres more to be done.
The publics support has been fantastic and were also grateful to Southampton FC for their help.
However, someone out there knows something about Lucys final movements.
Some Saints fans may have come back from holiday in time for the Burnley game and missed our appeals.
Its vital that they think back to Wednesday the 25th, when Lucy disappeared.
The CCTV footage shows Lucy at the Tesco Express on the corner of Coxford Road and Lordswood Road at 9.30am on July 25 near to the sports centre where her body was found.
Mr Barton added: Where did she go in between those times and who was she with?
If you can help us find Lucys killer, please contact us immediately.
Lucy was last seen wearing a black jacket with white sleeves, the logo for the band Falling In Reverse on the front and RADKE 01 in red on the back.
She also wore a white vest top, camouflage leggings and black and white Jordan trainers.
