A 46-year-old man was arrested this morning by police investigating the disappearance of Claudia Lawrence.
The man, who was arrested in the York area, was arrested on suspicion of perverting the course of justice, North Yorkshire Police said.
Detectives investigating the disappearance of Claudia Lawrence have this morning (23 July 2014) arrested a 46-year-old man from the York area on suspicion of perverting the course of justice.
The man is currently being interviewed in custody while searches and forensic enquiries are conducted in relation to the investigation.
With this investigation very much active, and with the possibility that further arrests will be made, it is extremely important that the media and the public do not publish or broadcast anything on traditional media platforms or on social and digital sites, that could compromise the enquiry or the legal rights of those connected to the case and involved in these proceedings.
