Vanuatu police have offered a reward as they step up the hunt for a man believed responsible for the murder of an elderly Australian woman last weekend.

The chief suspect is a 20-year-old Jacky Saul, who fled into bushland yesterday after police went to a house to arrest him.

Police said he was already wanted in connection with a number of home break-ins.
