Police will 'never give up' in search for Claudia

Claudia: Last seen nine years ago

North Yorkshire Police say they will 'never give up in their search to find out what happened to Claudia Lawrence.

It comes on the ninth anniversary of her disappearance. The 35-year-old chef from York was last seen near her home in Heworth on 18th March 2009 .

Her father, Peter, is holding a press conference outside the house later to speak of the family's ongoing trauma over still not knowing what happened to her.

North Yorkshire Police will never give up on Claudia and her family, and we will continue to investigate any new leads.

Information is regularly received but we strongly suspect key and vital information is still being withheld that could provide a breakthrough.

We all hope that those responsible for her disappearance and suspected murder are brought to justice. Our thoughts and continued support are with Claudia’s loved ones at this poignant time.
