CCTV footage has emerged of a potentially key witness into the death of homeless man David Collin, who was murdered in Maroochydore on September 9.

Sunshine Coast detectives investigating the death of the 53-year-old have located a person they wish to identify.

Investigators are seeking public assistance to identify a person, possibly female, seen on CCTV coming from the southern direction of Evans St before reaching the intersection and crossing School Rd.

The person may have been walking home, possibly from work, and can be witnessed turning around a number of times as though they have seen or heard something on Sunday night, September 8.

It comes after an appeal last week to identify a male on a pushbike seen on CCTV in the Evans Street, Millwell Road East intersection about 10:30pm.

Police are also asking for anyone with information regarding a hitchhiker in the Maroochydore area that Sunday night or early Monday morning, September 9, to come forward.

Motorists heading southbound on the Sunshine Motorway after 10:30pm may have seen a person walking from the Maroochydore area, or given them a lift.
