Police release fresh CCTV in Claudia Lawrence investigation

Previously unseen CCTV has been released in connection with the Claudia Lawrence investigation in the hope it may lead to new information about her disappearance.

Claudia has been missing for six years

Six years have passed since the York University chef was last heard from or seen alive.

On the morning of Wednesday, March 18th, 2009, Claudia went to work as normal and in the evening she spoke to her parents on the telephone. It was the last time anyone heard from her.

The footage shows two people who we need to identify. They were caught on a CCTV camera at 7.15pm on Wednesday 18th March 2009, a short while before Claudia spoke to her parents on the phone.

Of particular interest to the investigation team is the person who is seen walking down Heworth Place which leads to the back of Claudia’s house.

The person goes out of camera shot but reappears just over a minute later. They appear to be carrying a bag over their shoulder.

As the person heads back towards Heworth Road they suddenly stop when another unknown person walks past. Who is this? Do they live locally? What were they doing?

If you can help to identify either person, please contact us as soon as possible. We are waiting to hear from you.
