    They seem to be finally clamping down on the rings involved with grooming young vulnerable girls. Paige was last seen with a suitcase, so perhaps she's just runaway. If not then it could be the same perpetrator for both missing girls. Also, just had a look on a Blackpool missing site and I wonder if Jade Daniels aged 14, missing in 2007 ever returned. I can't find any more info, so fingers crossed that she did.

    Paige Chivers murder inquiry: Search on land in Bispham
    Police investigating the murder of Blackpool teenager Paige Chivers are searching an area of land. The search area is focussed on an overgrown patch of land off All Hallows Church, Bispham, in Lancashire. The land is close to where a flat was searched recently after a £30,000 reward was offered to help solve the 15-year-old's disappearance.
    Her father Frank, 49, was murdered at his home in Layton last year. Sean Conlon, 44, was convicted of his murder and jailed for a minimum of 15 years in January.

    I see that Charlene Downes who went missing in 2003 and is presumed to have been murdered was linked to Paige Chivers. Both girls seemingly frequented the same fast food takeaway place which seems to have been a hub for grooming and sexual abuse. Why LE could not build a prosecution around these sexual offences is lost on me.

    The prosecution of suspects in Downes murder seems to have been completely bungled. How the police got this so wrong seems a crime in itself. Shocked to read the suspects picked up massive compensation, again criminal if these guys were linked with Downes sexually. Would seem to make finding either girl harder.

    Hope LE haven't blown the chance to find out what happened to both girls. They certainly seem to linked, too many coincidences. At a guess the girls might have been groomed, abused and then murdered to insure silence.

    Two men have been arrested on suspicion of murdering a teenager who has been missing since 2007. Paige Chivers, 15, was last seen on August bank holiday in Bispham, Blackpool...

    The men, aged 45 and 59 from Blackpool, have been arrested on suspicion of murder and attempting to pervert the course of justice...

    Lancashire Constabulary said the investigation was being treated as a "no body" murder.

    Co-defendant Gareth Dewhurst, 45, of Duncan Avenue, Blackpool denies the same offence. Dewhurst also pleaded not guilty to additional charges of sex offence and assisting an offender in disposing of Paige’s body between the dates of August 23, 2007 and August 27, 2007.

    This case smells. It seems the police entered the wrong birth date for Paige Chivers when she was reported missing, causing delay because it showed a 45 year old missing (http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england...shire-32286204). Given the extreme reluctance of the police to deal with grooming issues until recently, and the specific failures of the Lancashire force, it makes you wonder if this was deliberate. In 2007 the police knew all about such activity, and there were many links with politicians in other cases, providing plenty of motives for interference with investigations.

    The jury in the Paige Chivers murder trial listened to covert recording of conversations between the man accused of her murder and his co-accused.

    The recordings were made as police stepped up their investigations, years after the teenager’s disappearance from her home in Longford Avenue, Bispham, in 2007. The muffled recordings were taken from the homes of Robert Ewing, 60, and Gareth Dewhurst.

    The prosecution claim that 15-year-old Paige was killed at Ewing’s flat on All Hallows Road, Bispham.

    Is this linked to the horrendous "chopped up in a kebab" cases...?

    Paige Chivers: Murder accused removed flooring

    A man accused of murdering a teenager from Lancashire removed carpet and flooring tiles from his home shortly after she disappeared because of his smelly cat, a court heard.

    The court heard pages of his diary had been torn out during 2007 - the year Paige disappeared.

    He said he suffered from memory loss and would write entries as reminders, and had removed them when no longer required.

    Missing Paige 'may still be alive'
    Last updated: 26 June 2015, 17:40 BST

    snipped
    A 15-year-old alleged murder victim could still be alive eight years after her disappearance, a court has heard.

    A jury at Preston Crown Court was told they could not rule out the possibility that Paige Chivers was not dead and could be living outside the UK.

    Robert Ewing, 60, is said to have groomed the "very troubled and vulnerable" Blackpool youngster before he beat her to death, possibly with a hammer, and then disposed of her body.

    But in his closing speech to the jury on behalf of Ewing, his barrister Stuart Denney QC suggested the "off the rails" and "wild" teenager had decided to run away and stay away.

    He said: "If ever there was a girl who had motive and personality to disappear for good, that girl was Paige Chivers in August 2007.

    "We are going to suggest, with reasons connected with her background, there were powerful reasons for Paige Chivers to finally leave home.

    Allegedly, Ewing may have been involved with the BNP/EDL, including attending protests about Paige's disappearance. The case and that of Charlene Downes became a cause celebre for the far right:
