25 Years Since Coventry Mum Nicola Payne Disappeared
The parents of a Coventry mum who went missing 25 years ago say they know she'll never been found alive.
On this day in 1991, 18 year old Nicola Payne went missing while on her way home in Coventry.
She left behind her baby son Owen.
Her parents, Marilyn and John, have told Heart they feel like that have served a life sentence while her potential killers walk free.
Last year two men were found not guilty of her murder and last month new searches started at Coombe Abbey after a new witness came forward.
Nicola's parents every new piece of information gives them hope that one day she'll be found. Her body has never been found but West Midlands Police said they are continuing to search for her.
