NEW images have been released in the search for suspected murder victim Natalie Jenkins.

Cleveland Police has released a series of new images of the 32-year-old woman, which are the most up-to-date pictures officers have of her. 

Ms Jenkins, of Thornaby, near Stockton, was last sighted on Parliament Road in Middlesbrough on Tuesday, December 10.

Last month, police launched a murder inquiry.

As part of their ongoing investigation officers have been trying to trace her last steps in a bid to find her.

Senior Investigating Officer, Detective Chief Inspector Mark Dimelow said: “Previously, we have only had one recent photo of Natalie to release to the public and the images we are releasing today clearly show what she looked like just a month before she went missing.

“The images were sent to officers as a result of previous appeals and are taken from CCTV footage at a shop in Stokesley in mid-November 2019.

“We hope the photos provide the public with a clearer image of what Natalie looked like when she went missing in the hope that someone may come forward with information regarding any sightings of her on Tuesday 10th or Wednesday 11th December 2019.

“We would urge anyone with information regarding Natalie’s whereabouts, or anyone who may have seen her on these dates to contact police as a matter of urgency. Your information could be a key piece of evidence which could assist us with our investigation.”

Ms Jenkins is a white female, of very slim build, around 5’5” tall with a fair complexion and straight brown hair. She has hazel eyes and a missing front tooth. She has a tattoo saying SWANNY on her neck and another on her wrist saying SWANN.

A £10,000 reward has been offered to anyone with information that leads to the conviction of those responsible for her suspected murder. 

Anyone with information as to Natalie’s whereabouts or anyone who may have seen her, is asked to contact Cleveland Police on 101.

To claim the reward, information must be passed to iondependent charity Crimestoppers.
