    She met Lee Melsch in Cuba, didn't she? I think he is English. I thought he was part of a larger group of English tourists - oh well

    It has been suggested to me that retired policemen actually work in cold case teams !
    Surely not !?

    Does anyone remember a witness seeing two men outside Claudia's door at the same time?

    Police reveal new clues in search for Claudia Lawrence

    If you go back a few pages on the thread @Vixey posted a photo taken by someone on heworth road ( maybe sat in traffic )
    it showed possible figures at the front door of a property that looked to be Claudias

    I looked at it and it appeared to me that one of the persons appeared to be attempting to kick the door in.. this was just my opinion

    Det Supt Galloway also appealed for information about two men seen loitering outside Claudia’s terraced home, in Heworth Road, around five days before she vanished without trace.

    He said on either March 10 or 13, a female driver stuck in traffic saw two nervous-looking men at Claudia’s front door in the early afternoon.

    “One of the men, an Asian male, appeared to try the door – whether with a key or whether he just tried the door handle, we don’t know,” said Det Sup Galloway. “They were watched by the witness for three or four minutes, as she approached the roundabout at Malton Road.

    “There could have been a legitimate reason, we don’t know, and I would appeal to these men to come forward.

    “If they were salesmen or there was any other reason why they were there, please come forward.”

    The Asian man is described as being in his early 20s, 5ft 8ins tall, of slim build, with a thin pointed nose and dark areas under his eyes. The second man is described as taller, with short dark hair and a heavier build. He was wearing a Crombie-style coat

    There's not a lot I can tell you unfortunately.

    I remember the police searching rooms. I had gone back home for Easter shorly after she disappeared. When I came back, I didnt know if they'd searched mine or not, not that it bothered me at the time.

    We definitely spoke about her to each other, it was in the national news. We lived a few yards away from roger kirk centre and my lectures were a few yards away from roger kirk on the other side, so we were right there. As students I don't think it even occurred to us it could have been a student, at least on campus. We were all living on top of each other, bumped into one another every 5 minutes it felt like.

    I wish I would have paid more attention but at the time I was just a kid going out drinking most nights, coming home the next morning, so even then my memory of recent events was terrible *

    Generally the answer would be No unless it’s been recorded in any transcripts if it’s part of a court case
    Can you expand upon what you are referring to? X

    Claudia Lawrence search police appeal for information about dark-coloured van

    Here it is @Kir. Put out shortly before the owner reportedly came forward. It intrigues me where he says "Monkton Road" (it's quite close to Heworth Road) and then corrects himself with "Malton Road" for the direction it departed towards!

    Surly not especially if they worked on the case !
    And often IMO the cases are cold because they’ve made a mistake or were not very diligent

    I don't think they work their old cases. Perhaps @Angleterre would know?
