Police plan to search home of chef Claudia Lawrence missing since 2009
Detectives are to forensically re-examine the home of missing chef Claudia Lawrence as part of a fresh review into her disappearance.
Miss Lawrence, 35, was reported missing after she failed to turn up to work in York University in March 2009. She had been seen the previous evening close to her home in the suburb of Heworth.
Despite a high-profile investigation by North Yorkshire Police involving some 100 officers – and a tireless campaigning effort by her father – no trace of the woman has ever been found.
Plans to search the house in Heworth Road, York, where she lived alone, follows the formation of a new crime unit at the North Yorkshire force. It is not prompted by new leads, but part of the remit to look at important cold cases. Detective Superintendant Dai Malyn said he hoped advances since 2009 might assist with the review.
