A statement from Nicky Blamires, Suzanne Blamier's mother (released by West Yorkshire Police)
"Unfortunately my daughter went down the wrong path and she did not have the life she was meant to have.
"She was a much loved daughter, sister and neice and what has happened to her will haunt me to the day I die.
"Suzanne was a bright, articulate girl who went to college and was training to be a nurse.
"Even though she ended up on the wrong path she tried to protect her family and kept herself to herself so people knew very little about her.
"She always knew she could come home and that the door was always open. We also saw her all the time and were always there for her.
"At the end of the day nobody deserves this. All these girls were human beings and peoples daughters."
