Police investigating the disappearance of a young Coventry mum 21 years ago are continuing to search parkland following new information about the case.
West Midlands Police said a number of specialist teams are scouring an area of cordoned-off parkland off Purcell Road in Coventry in connection with the disappearance of Nicola Payne in 1991. Her son Owen was six months old at the time.
The 18-year-old left her boyfriend's home to walk to her parents house nearby, but she never arrived.
Searches, which include the use of ground x-ray equipment, are expected to last several days
The parents of an 18-year-old woman who went missing exactly 21 years ago are desperate for information that could help find their daughter.
Police in Coventry may excavate parkland in the second day of the search for Nicola Payne who disappeared more than twenty years ago.
Nicola went missing 21 years ago this December but police remain optimistic that they will solve the case into her disappearance.
