Peter Lawrence, the father of missing York chef Claudia Lawrence, has renewed his appeal to help find his daughter a day after the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) confirmed there would be no charges against four men being investigated over her suspected murder.
n a statement Mr Lawrence said he is disappointed with the outcome but reiterated that not knowing where Claudia is the hardest thing for the family to bear.
"I am disappointed that after such a long and expensive police investigation into Claudia’s disappearance and possible murder no-one is to be prosecuted. However, prosecution and even conviction would not bring Claudia back to us and may well not have resulted in revealing where she is buried, if she was murdered.
Someone knows what happened on that day 7 years ago and they should now come forward to tell us where our darling daughter, and Ali’s loving sister, is. I have always said that the not knowing is the hardest thing for the family to bear."
