Suzy Lamplugh search ends with cops finding no evidence of missing estate agent

THE latest search for the body of Suzy Lamplugh has ended as cops were unable to find any evidence of the missing estate agent.

Hopes for a break-through in one of Britain's most notorious cold cases were dashed after the fortnight-long excavation in Pershore, Worcs, proved fruitless.



The 25-year-old was last seen in July 1986 when she went to show a client around a house in Fulham, West London.

Ms Lamplugh was pronounced dead – presumed murdered – in 1994.

A body has never been found and her killer never charged.

Cops also searched the garden of key suspect John Cannan's mother in Sutton Coldfield, Birmingham, but failed to find any evidence.

London's Metropolitan Police said Ms Lamplugh's family had been informed.

They said the case would stay open, saying: "We remain committed to securing justice for Suzy and her family, and officers will continue to assess any new information received in connection with this case."

West Mercia cops also announced that a discovery of human remains in the village of Kempsey, Worcs, was unlikely to be related to Ms Lamplugh's disappearance.

However, they said this would be keeping an "open mind" – and were "moving as fast as we can" with the investigation.

In a statement, the force said: "We are aware there is some speculation that this discovery may be linked to the disappearance of Suzy Lamplugh who also went missing in the 1980s.

"Although we don't believe it to be, until we have the post-mortem results we are not in a position to link the bones to any particular person at this stage and are keeping an open mind."
