FRIENDS of Adam O’Toole took to the streets of Oldham in the latest leg of a campaign to track down his killer.
A group including former Huddersfield New College colleagues handed out leaflets at the town’s main shopping centre.
They showed an e-fit picture of the hit-and-run driver who left Adam fatally injured on March 6.
Adam’s girlfriend, Laura Davidson, also spoke on local radio to appeal for help.
Ex-New College student Robert McGuin, who organised the leaflet drop, said: “The driver was last seen heading in the direction of Oldham.
“But the message wouldn’t necessarily have made it over there.
“We went to one of the busiest shopping centres because we wanted to attract the maximum amount of publicity. We are trying everything we can to get justice.”
Adam, who lived with his mother Beverley in Holmbridge, was knocked down at New Hey Road near Salendine Nook Post Office at 10.30am on Tuesday, March 6.
The 18-year-old was studying for a BTec National Diploma in sports studies.
He hoped to attend university in Leeds to study sports.
He was also a highly-regarded Huddersfield Rugby Union Club junior winger and academy player, who had trials for Yorkshire.
The leaflet was produced by New College students.
Assistant principal Helen Smithson said: “A lot of them were in the same teaching group as Adam, were his friends, and don’t want to forget him.
“They feel strongly that there is someone out there who knows something and want to do anything they can to help police in their investigations.
“We completely support them in doing something so important.”
The leaflet campaign follows the setting up of a group on social networking website Facebook dedicated to Adam’s memory.
The group, which was set up by Robert McGuin, is designed to spread the word about what happened.
It has more than 1,000 members.
Anyone with information about the incident should call police on 0845 6060606.
