Family plea after missing teenager Rachel Wilson's body found
Monday 16 July 2012
The family of a teenager murdered after going missing a decade ago made an emotional plea today as police confirmed they had found her body.
Vulnerable Rachel Wilson, 19, disappeared from Middlesbrough, where she was a sex worker, in May 2002.
Cleveland Police today confirmed that human remains found at Newham Hall Farm on the outskirts of the town were hers and said they have reopened the investigation into Rachel's death.
Speaking at a press conference at the force's headquarters in Middlesbrough, her mother, Tina Wilson, said: "For the last ten years we've been sure she'll come in the house. On Friday we found out she wouldn't.
"All I'm asking for is somebody that knows, come forward and let us know and let us find out what happened to Rachel."
