I was delighted to be able to assist GMP to bring this case to a satisfactory fruition.
The two Greater Manchester Police officers who have provided continued support for this case for over three years but the real credit goes to Atiya's mum, Gemma, who never gave up.
I am also very grateful to the Pakistani authorities who did the work on the ground to locate Atiya.
