    I worked Thursday to Sunday before moving to Sheffield and clocked that he arranged to give her a lift to work usually on Mondays. As a lab tech it is plausible, but not that plausible, that he started work early on Mondays. If he didn't, perhaps he had an early Monday morning hobby that meant giving Claudia a lift was not as out of his way/gestural as you might first suspect. Otherwise it does suggest he was quite fond of her, he seemed to be......

    @moonsafari I know her car was in for repair when she went missing but did she not take her car to work normally or was Monday a morning that preferred a heavy night at the Nags Head and so a lift was a better option ?

    Sunday night would often end late when there were visitors from further afield and yes I think it was often the case she didn't feel comfortable driving herself or wanted to sleep in as late as possible so didn't want to walk either.

    Perhaps he went in to the Roger Kirk cafe with her and had an early morning fry up before work?

    @moonsafari We're they regular visitors from further afield? I am currently reviewing all Facebook posts for the last 10 Years. What is interesting is that one of "the group" who doesn't post that frequently, does appear to "sew distracting seeds" These could be to throw people off the scent. I will know more in the next few days as I check the whole FB page out back to its start. I don't know if you have seen all of my posts on this thread but in one of them I mention Google images in 2009 that show a warehouse at foundation stage of building and today is a Travis Perkins warehouse next to a builders merchants near Malton. I would be interested in your view? Personally I don't believe that CL was buried at York University foundations. But could be at another build.

    Just the googlemap for Heworth Road circa 2009 showing the position of the red triangle sign in relation to key properties.

    You mean York Road Industrial Park, Seph Way? I know Ruane's business is/was based out of there. It would be helpful to know everywhere police have searched but I imagine they're keeping schtum. Have to wonder who started all those rumours too.......

    Thanks @moonsafari Yes Terry. Interesting that on Facebook everyone follows the walk to work kidnap theory and no one is brave enough to suggest a mishap locally. The choice of the second codename for the CL case by Police is quite telling-"Essence" meanings-centre of or Nub....

    So what is your theory of the case? (if you have one?)

    I loved your blog BTW

    It was that piece of writing got me interested - a fantastic long form piece.

    @moonsafari The police sniffer dogs followed Claudia's smell to the river but it was dismissed as unbelievable

    I have never heard that before. Which river? And from which location did the pick up her scent?
