5th anniversary of Claudia Lawrence's disappearance
It is five years since Claudia Lawrence disappeared on her way home from work at the University of York. To mark the anniversary and appeal for further information about her whereabouts, her family is organising events all week.
The mother of missing York chef Claudia Lawrence, who was last seen five years ago today. has marked the anniversary of her disappearance by walking the route that her daughter should have taken to work the day after she was last seen.
The route goes from Claudia's house in Heworth, along a normally busy main road to the University about 3 miles away. Christine Talbot joined Joan Lawrence as, for the first time, she walked in the footsteps its thought Claudia may have taken that day five years ago.
The father of Claudia Lawrence has spoken at a press conference, five years after his daughter disappeared.
During the statement, Peter Lawrence, was extremely emotional. He described the family's suffering as 'like a cancer' saying it 'gets worse and worse', adding that there is no solution until they know what happened.
