Pakistani refugee Naved Baluch was released Tuesday when German Police admitted they weren’t sure they had the right suspect and there was insufficient evidence to connect him with the lorry attack in Berlin which killed 12 and injured up to 50 more.
Naved’s cousin Waheed, who was with him when he was arrested a mile away from the scenes of devastation at the Berlin market, says he’s not been heard from since his release.
Waheed told the MailOnline: ‘[Naved] is missing, his phone is off. I am very worried. We have no link with religious fundamentalists or terrorists. He condemns terrorism.’
His cousin also said he’s worried about Naved’s mental health.
‘He cannot travel alone due to his mental conditions. He lives in Tempelhof area of Berlin and cannot go back to his house without help.’
Naved’s roommate at the Tempelhof migrant centre also says he has not returned home.
German authorities have now offered a reward of up to 100,000 euro (£84,000) for information leading to the arrest of a Tunisian man wanted over the deadly truck attack on a Christmas market in Berlin.
Federal prosecutors described 24-year-old Anis Amri as being of average height and weight, with black hair and brown eyes.
Prosecutors warned that the suspect could be armed and dangerous, and urged members of the public to notify police if they see him.
