14 December 2013, 06:08
Detectives investigating the disappearence of Nicola Payne 22 years ago today are following up a number of new enquiries.
Nicola Payne who was 18 at the time went missing from her boyfriend's home in the City, leaving behind 7 month old baby.
Police say they've had a positive response from the public following this week's revelation that a number of items from the investigation had been sent for forensic testing.
Officers are currently following up a number of enquiries and are appealing for anyone who hasn’t contacted detectives yet to come forward with any information they may have.
The breakthrough into the inquiry came after a full review carried out by officers working on the 22-year-old investigation.
DI Martin Slevin, who is leading the inquiry, said: “We have received a number of calls relating to Nicola’s disappearance and some have given us new and interesting lines of inquiry to follow up. We are asking for anyone who hasn’t phoned us yet and who has information to come forward. We are determined to find what happened to Nicola and bring closure to her family."
