A £10,000 reward is being offered for information that helps find the body of a Teesside mother, who police believe has been murdered.

Naheed Khan from Thornaby went missing in May last year, shortly before becoming a grandmother for the first time.

Crimestoppers is offering the cash reward as an incentive for information on where the 43-year-old's body may be located.

This is such a sad case and our hearts go out to family and friends affected by Naheed’s suspicious disappearance.

Whilst this may appear something of a mystery, we believe there will be someone, somewhere who is in the know. We are appealing directly to you to please do the right thing. Naheed was a loving mother, daughter, sister and aunt. She has missed out on seeing her granddaughter Aria. Her disappearance has been treated as a murder investigation since January 2019.

Anyone who wants to say what they know without speaking directly to the authorities can use our charity’s unique service. We take crime information from people every day and we make a huge difference by helping to keep communities safe thanks to information we receive. Everyone who contacts us stays 100% anonymous. Always.
