    UK - Nicola Payne, 18, Coventry England, 14 Dec 1991 ***ARRESTS***

    http://www.guardian.co.uk/uk/2012/ju...ice-arrest-two



    Two men have been arrested in connection with the disappearance of a young mother who vanished while walking to her parents' home almost 21 years ago.

    The arrests were made in Coventry, West Midlands, as a detailed search continued of parkland off Purcell Road for the remains of Nicola Payne, 18, who was the mother of a seven-month-old son.

    Family Still Holds Out Hope

    The family of a woman missing for 21 years say they have not given up hope despite a three-day search of parkland being called off.

    Nicola Payne, 18, went missing from the Wood End area of Coventry in 1991.

    Acting on information, police started searching land close to where she lived but it is understood no remains were found.

    Ms Payne's father, John, said they just want to find her to "bring her home (and) put her to rest".

    Nicola Payne: New Appeal For Missing Teen Mum

    A young actor has joined the parents of a teenage mother who went missing 21 years ago to launch a new police appeal for information on the anniversary of her disappearance.

    Nicola Payne, 18, vanished after leaving her home in the Wood End area of Coventry in December 1991.

    She was heading to her parents' home a short walk away, but they never saw her again.

    Marilyn and John Payne said they hoped the appeal would encourage people to come forward with information so they could finally find out what happened to their daughter, who had a six-month-old son.

    Mrs Payne said: "I have a special time of the day where I sit and I think about Nicola. I even talk to her picture and I always think about her.

    "It's very difficult yet people keep saying to me you're so strong.

    "If they could see inside I'm completely broken. I get this awful pain and it just doesn't go away.

    "That will never lift until she is found. If she's found then we can lay her to rest and then we've got an ending."

    Actor George Evans is supporting the appeal after speaking to Mr and Mrs Payne while researching his role in a play called The Missing.

    Police hope the involvement of the former Hollyoaks star, who at 21 is the same age as Miss Payne's son Owen is now, will encourage younger members of the local community to come forward with any information they may have heard while growing up.

    The search has not revealed any evidence police say, but the case is still very much an active investigation. As you can see from the comments, police really are leaving no stone unturned.

    Thinking of Nicola's baby, who will be a young adult by now. This must be a very difficult time.

    Searches continuing today following a 'very significant tip'. They may stop tomorrow though, if nothing is found.

    Someone posting on here seems to know who one of the arrested suspects is, and doesn't seem too surprised...

    Two arrests made or rather re-arrests after new evidence has come to light

    http://www.itv.com/news/central/stor...disappearance/

    Also police are seeking more people to come forward. Interesting that they are giving Willenhall police station as contact as that comes under Walsall...not Coventry.

    Two men have been charged with murdering 18-year-old Nicola Payne who went missing 23 years ago, police said.

    Nigel Barwell, 51 from Copperas Street, Coventry and Thomas O'Reilly, 50 from Ribble Road, Coventry, have been remanded in custody.

    Hi everyone, newbie here! I've been following this case with interest as I've always spent a lot of time in Coventry and remember Nicola's disappearance being in the newspaper all those years ago. I think they must have some pretty strong evidence against the 2 men that have been charged, hopefully DNA will nail them. When they were originally arrested back in 2013 the newspaper report said new forensic evidence. They were up in court last week and pleaded not-guilty, so it doesn't seem likely that they are going to give up her whereabouts even if they are found guilty. So sad for her family.

    I wonder if the two men charged are the same two men the police questioned back in 1991. I think the search of Coombe Park and the suspects house must of turned up new evidence. I wonder whever these two men knew nicola or whever they planned to snatch a random women that day.

    There was pictures in the telegraph back in 2013 showing the police taking a safe away from a lock up garage belonging to one of the suspects. I think they must have some serious evidence against them to have taken it to a trial. If you read the web page Nicola's family have set up it says they have a good idea who they think is responsible, that might indicate that they suspect someone known to them and possibly Nicola.

    I wonder if they've been under suspicion for many years but the police have just never had the evidence they need, it will be interesting to find out whether or not they were questioned all those years ago. Coombe Abbey seems to feature a lot, the police found "items of interest" there when the case was re-opened leading to the arrests.

    Witnesses said they saw a car with the boot open with two men standing by it near the area where Nicola was last seen ive always wondered what those men were actually doing there were they waiting for Nicola or were they just waiting for a random women to attack.I also wonder what the items of interest were that were found. I believe the fishing lake there which was searched was only newly opened when nicola went missing. I think the police searched the area when they recieved new information maybe the third person who was originally arrested told the police something.

    The third person was one of the suspects wife, if you look on her Facebook profile her maiden name is the same as the other suspect so it looks like the 2 being charged are related to each other.

    I would think they were just looking out for any woman to attack if that was them, they couldn't have known to expect Nicola. Unless they did indeed know her.

    Here's a link to the forensic breakthrough http://www.coventrytelegraph.net/new...ry-mum-6396478

    I really get the feeling the police have a very strong case and a lot is going to come out when it goes to trial.

    I also wonder if the two suspects have previous convictions for crimes against women it would certainly appear that in 1991 they intended to harm women.

    It wouldn't surprise me, I think if a person (or persons in this case) has the capacity to do something so bad to another human being I find it hard to believe they've gone through their whole lives (over 50 years for these 2) without ever being involved in anything else similar. I think the police have got their men this time, I just wish they'd come clean and let the girls family lay her to rest but I can't see them doing it sadly.

    I agree although i do feel the police at some point will find Nicola body.What worries me is if these men did abduct and murder Nicola i cant help but feel they may have done a similar thing before or since.

    Couldn't agree more, it seems inconceivable that whoever did this just attacked Nicola and never offended again. A bit of google searching tells you a bit about the family, let's just say they aren't of great character and one of them skipped bail last year although I couldn't find anything connecting them to other crimes of this nature. Yell.com also shows that one of them is a self employed gardener, but trying to find all the sites he could have been working at over 23 years ago will be difficult for the police to trace. His job would give him plenty of opportunity to get rid of a body under someone else's garden. I wouldn't be surprised if this is where the key to this case lies. I wonder if the suspects were involved in landscaping the fishing area at Coombe Abbey as it has often been at the centre of the search for Nicola.
