    Claudia Lawrence enquiry moves to reactive phase.
    “The case will not be closed until those responsible for Claudia’s disappearance and, we believe, her murder, are brought to justice. Whilst the current review team will and has been scaled down, the new Cleveland and North Yorkshire cold case dedicated team will still have responsibility to review any information that is considered relevant."

    "Despite their exhaustive efforts, the support of national experts, the application of the very latest forensic techniques to exhibits recovered many years ago, and despite the team tracing and speaking to many people who did not come forward in the first enquiry, we have sadly not been able to find that crucial piece of information."


    “A total of nine people were arrested or interviewed under caution during the course of the review, and in the summer of 2014, in early 2015 and in December 2015, we submitted files to the Crown Prosecution Service in relation to a number of individuals."

    “The CPS concluded we had gathered insufficient evidence to be able to bring any charges against those people."

    The last confirmed contact anyone had with the 35-year-old University of York chef was when she spoke to her mother Joan on the phone just after 8pm on Wednesday, 18th March 2009. Claudia failed to attend work the following day, and was reported missing on the Friday.

    "There is nothing in the manner of her text messages or from her phone billing that indicated she was going to do anything other than attend work the following morning."

    Among many other lines of enquiry, the team:

    • Reviewed a large amount of CCTV from local council systems, private premises and buses that was seized by the original team. This, for instance, led to the image of the man in Limes Court being found that Det Supt Malyn and his team consider very relevant
    • Assessed and analysed other “passive” data, including mobile phone records
    • Conducted extensive checks on Claudia’s finances
    • Undertook comprehensive forensic investigations in Claudia’s house and other buildings, on open land, on DNA samples, in cars, garages, and notably on many fingerprint marks. This work included the use of sniffer dogs, ground penetrating radar, the analysis of aerial photography, and the use of geologists and archaeologists
    • A review of exhibits seized and fingerprints lifted throughout the investigation was a key piece of work, and more than 4,100 exhibits and over 400 fingerprints have been reviewed
    • Produced the North Yorkshire Police microsite dedicated to appeal points and information about the Claudia Lawrence investigation and the use of electronic appeal boards
    • Dealt with 7,183 nominals who have come into the enquiry
    • Seized 4,114 exhibits
    • Raised 8,077 actions
    • Taken 2,517 statements with a further 3,815 officers’ reports
    • Received 457 messages and recorded another 678 transmissions (emails)
    • In total, 627 police officers and staff have played some role or other during the investigation
    No crime scene has ever been identified, and based upon the forensic work undertaken and in the view of experts, it does not appear that Claudia was subjected to a violent attack in her home involving the loss of blood.
    • Claudia did not have a computer, did not access the internet via her phone and did not have a social media presence.
    During the review the team focused on a number of people who – for different reasons – came to attention. Their movements at the time of Claudia’s disappearance needed to be established in order to either eliminate or implicate them in the case.
    • This work involved interviews, house searches, review of telephone activity, and speaking with other witnesses to clarify their movements and other work.
    • In total, 159 people were fully reviewed.
    • The eye-witness sightings of an unknown man and a woman spotted arguing near Claudia’s house remain inconclusive, but an unknown man seen on CCTV footage near Claudia’s home around the time she disappeared remains of very significant interest. Despite extensive enquiries and media appeals, it has not been possible to identify this individual."
    “It remains the case that people close to Claudia have not always been entirely truthful with us and have withheld information."
    “The review team will now be reduced in line with the reduced demand, but the investigation will always remain open – and regularly reviewed – until Claudia is found and those responsible for her disappearance and murder are brought to justice.”

    Police 'fed me to the wolves', says York landlord after pub searched in Claudia Lawrence investigation

    A man arrested in connection with the inquiry into missing chef Claudia Lawrence claims he has been “fed to the wolves” by police as he revealed officers dug up a section of his cellar and removed doors and a chest of drawers from his pub.

    Claudia Lawrence went missing more than five years ago as she walked home from her job as a chef at the University of York.

    On Wednesday police swooped on the Acomb Hotel, owned by Paul Harris, with police dogs, hammers and drilling equipment.

    They also arrested Mr Harris, 46, at his home in Acomb on suspicion of perverting the course of justice. He was held for 12 hours at Harrogate Police Station before being released on bail.
