A County Durham woman has been charged with harassing the family of a toddler who went missing more than 30 years ago.

Donna Wright, 33, from Hillside Court, Spennymoor, is alleged to have used Facebook to send messages to Katrice Lee's family.

The little girl went missing on her second birthday in 1981 from a shop near a British army base in Paderborn, Germany.

Katrice's mother Sharon, from Gosport, Hampshire, and father Richard Lee, from Hartlepool, believe she was snatched and may still be alive.

Following a hearing at Newton Aycliffe Magistrates' Court Donna Wright was remained on bail on the condition that she does not make contact with Katrice's family, look at the missing girl's Facebook page or contact the page's administrators.
