Detectives investigating the disappearance of a young mother who has been missing for 14 years have received potentially "crucial information" from a caller.
Natalie Putt, from Lower Gornal in Dudley, was just 17 years old when she went missing in September 2003.
Detective inspector Ian lliffe of West Midlands Police said: "We have received a phone call from a man in a telephone box in Lake Street area of Gornal with specific information that has the potential to lead to the person responsible for Natalie's death."
Inspectors are urging the caller to contact them again as they say he may have crucial information to help their investigation.
Police have been exhuming graves in a Gornal cemetery in the hunt for the missing mother-of-one.

We were joined in the studio this afternoon by some very special guests - two of the famous Dancing Grannies.
The three 'grannies' from the Black Country became a world-wide internet hit in 2014 when they busted some uncharacteristically raunchy moves to the latest hits.
The 'elderly' dance troupe are actually friends Sue Hawkins, Jackie Fellows, and Deb Nicholls who met at Dudley College.
The group have become so popular they are even flying out to Bahrain next week to perform at the F1 Grand Prix.
