New Appeal for Information on Missing Claudia Lawrence's 39th Birthday
3:07pm 27th February 2013
Today is the 39th birthday of York chef Claudia Lawrence who has been missing from York since March 2009.
In an emotional statement, Martin Dales, who is Claudia’s father Peter Lawrence friend and spokesman, said,
“I cannot believe that we are yet again at another birthday for Claudia and there is still no news as to what has happened to her. All anniversaries are hard for the family and friends to cope with and it is unacceptable that there is still no closure – good or bad.
“Out there are some heartless persons who know something but they don’t have the guts to tell the police what they know. How low can people get – it’s outrageous and continues, after 4 years, to cause immense damage to Peter & the family.
“Vast amounts of police time, effort and over £750,000 of public money has gone into trying to find answers and, after this length of time, they, along with family and friends, deserve to have those answers.
“So I make a further appeal to those who know these answers.
“How can you sleep at night knowing you know the answer?
“ How can you live the lie with yourselves?
“ Have you no feelings for those who are suffering because of your misguided silence?
“Do what you know in your heart of hearts what is right and end the misery of all those who love and care for Claudia even if you don’t.”
