Family plea as missing Claudia Lawrence is remembered on her birthday

The Northern Echo: Claudia Lawrence: Missing for four years. Claudia Lawrence: Missing for four years.

THE grieving family of chef Claudia Lawrence have marked what would have been her birthday with another emotional plea for help.

Claudia, who disappeared nearly four years ago, would have marked her 39th birthday today, February 27.

But instead of celebrating her family have been left with just memories – and the continuing mystery of exactly what happened when she vanished.

Claudia was on her way to work at York University from her home in the city when she disappeared on March 18, 2009.

Police suspect she was murdered, but despite a huge investigation which has even taken them overseas no trace of her has ever been found.

Her father Peter Lawrence’s close friend and spokesman Martin Dales said: “I cannot believe that we are yet again at another birthday for Claudia and there is still no news as to what has happened to her.

“All anniversaries are hard for the family and friends to cope with and it is unacceptable that there is still no closure – good or bad.

“Out there are some heartless persons who know something but they don’t have the guts to tell the police what they know. How low can people get? It’s outrageous and continues, after four years, to cause immense damage to Peter and the family.”

He added: “Vast amounts of police time, effort and over £750,000 of public money has gone into trying to find answers and, after this length of time, they, along with family and friends, deserve to have those answers.

“So I make a further appeal to those who know these answers.

“How can you sleep at night knowing you know the answer?

“How can you live the lie with yourselves?

“Have you no feelings for those who are suffering because of your misguided silence?

“Do what you know in your heart of hearts what is right and end the misery of all those who love and care for Claudia even if you don’t.”

Claudia and her family originally came from Darlington and later moved to Malton, North Yorkshire, where she was brought up.

Anyone with information that could help the investigation, can phone police on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800-555111.

As a Mystic I have had a great deal of peranormal interaction regarding this scenario. I have been active under Yehsa Ballard and as a result of my input I have been removed from many groups/forums for making known knowledge that flies in the face of those who thought that they knew Claudia, and that applies to many who have spoken for on her behalf. I have been influenced by a connection since the early days, during my work I have made errors and have had many malevolent distractions. However from RV and other input I have knowledge of over fifteen pointers to a place and I have been there and found those markers giving strength to my determination to carry on. It is a shame that no one bothers with me,perhapse thinking that I have a screw loose. I did write to Newby Wiske but heard nothing perhapse because of my form. But I shall not give up for very few get this knowledge.
