Police are searching the garden of a property on Teesside as part of their investigation into the murder of grandmother Naheed Khan.
Naheed, 43, had links to Stockton, Middlesbrough and Thornaby.
She is described as Asian, of slim build and around 5ft 6” tall, with long, dark hair.
The search today could potentially lead detectives to Naheed’s whereabouts and is part of a series of planned searches our dedicated team will be carrying out early this year.
Naheed Khan has been missing since May 2018 and police believe her last movements were in Middlesbrough.
Crimestoppers have previously offered a £10,000 reward for information that helps find Naheed's body.
