3 years without Claudia
12:00am 18th March 2012
Today marks the 3rd anniversary of the York chef Claudia Lawrence's disappearance in 2009.
Detective Superintendent Ray Galloway, the senior investigating officer, said:
"The third anniversary of Claudia Lawrence's disappearance and suspected murder is a very poignant and emotional occasion for everyone connected to the inquiry.
"For Claudia's family and friends, it is another traumatic milestone when the full sense of their loss and helplessness comes to the fore in a very public way.
"I would again like to stress my sincere admiration of their dignified courage and strength throughout the investigation.
"They know that we will never give up on the search for Claudia and those responsible for her tragic disappearance.
"Information continues to come in and is being analysed by detectives, but we are still seeking that crucial breakthrough that will unravel this most complex of investigations.
"It is still not too late for people to come forward if they think they may be able to help. If you feel reluctant to assist the police for whatever reason, then I ask that you think of the devastation and heartache that Claudia's family have endured every day for three long years.
"Someone out there knows what happened to Claudia. It is now time to do the right thing and help to bring a measure of closure for her loved ones."
