Rania Alayed, 25, from Norton on Teesside, moved to Manchester in January. In June, she vanished but her body has not been found.
Teesside Correspondent Rachel Bullock reports.
The former neighbours of missing Rania Alayed have spoken of their shock to hear that she may have been murdered after moving to the North West earlier this year.
She has not been seen since June and police now believe her body may be buried beside the A19 near Thirsk. Friends living close to Rania's former home in Norton on Teesside said they were horrified.
The body of a missing mother-of-three is believed to be buried or concealed along a 19-mile (30km) stretch of rural road, police have said.
Rania Alayed, 25, was reported missing from her home in Cheetham Hill, Manchester, on July 2, having been last seen in public on the evening of June 7.
It is thought she was taken in a white camper van in the early hours of June 8 to the Thirsk area of North Yorkshire, where her body was disposed of.
The Leyland DAF 200 vehicle, registration number F864 RJB, which has since been recovered, is believed to have stopped in an unidentified layby on the northbound A19.
Two men have been charged with Ms Alayed's murder but detectives want to trace her body as their investigations continue.
Police searching for a missing mother of three from Cheetham Hill are appealing for witnesses who saw a white campervan which they think may be connected to her disappearance. They want to contact anyone who saw it on the A19 near Thirsk in the early hours of Saturday 8 June 2013.
