    The heartbroken father of a student who has been missing for 15 years has appealed for those who know what happened to his daughter to come forward.

    Iwona Kaminska vanished in July 2000, just four days after arriving in England from Poland.

    More than a decade on, police now fear she may have been kidnapped and murdered.

    Aged 20 at the time, cold case cops from the Metropolitan Police have offered a 10,000 reward for information that leads to the arrest and successful prosecution for whoever is responsible for her disappearance or murder.

    According to police Ms Kaminska arrived in London on 9 July 2000, for what was her first visit to the country.

    She planned to tour the city to improve her English and quickly found a job at a Polish-owned business in Hammersmith, west London.

    In the days before her disappearance she had been lodging with a friend near the Arndale Centre in Wandsworth, south west London

    Ms Kaminska arrived in London on 9 July and quickly found a job at a Polish-owned business on King Street in Hammersmith, west London.

    She was staying with a friend who lived near the Arndale Centre in Wandsworth, and was seen on CCTV leaving for work on the morning of 13 July.

    Ms Kaminska spent the day packing glasses and was due to meet a friend at 19:00 BST in Wandsworth, but never turned up.

    She would have been expected to catch the 220 bus from Hammersmith bus station.

    Ms Kaminska was described as white, 5ft 2in (157cm) tall, slim and with light brown, shoulder-length hair. She was last seen wearing dark trousers and a dark green knee-length jacket, and carrying a small black leather handbag.


    Her family in Modliborzyce, Poland, said her birthday was on 22 January "and she should be celebrating turning 36".

    Dotr, thank you for posting and creating thread for Iwona! I am really surprised she did not have one yet as her case is quite well known.

    She is briefly mentioned in another thread here with regards to disappearance of other girls in the area in the same time frame.

    This is the first time though that I am hearing about the possible perp - Andrzej Kunowski, mentioned there too (http://nnet-server.com/server/common/concrime33.htm)
