Introduction to the Claudia Lawrence investigation
North Yorkshire Police's commitment and determination to solve the case and bring closure for Claudia's loved-ones, is undiminished by the passage of time. Detective Superintendent Dai Malyn, head of the force's enhanced Major Crime Unit, is leading a comprehensive review of the original investigation.
This has been supported by national experts from other forces and agencies, including forensic specialists who recently completed a re-examination of Claudia’s home on Heworth Road in York.
As a result of this work, Det Supt Malyn and his team have identified new lines of enquiry and fresh public appeals to pursue, as well as renewed appeals on previous key items of interest to the investigation.
Detective Chief Superintendent Simon Mason, Head of Crime for North Yorkshire Police, said: “The decision to focus and prioritise the efforts of the enhanced Major Crime Unit on this case and undertake a comprehensive review of the original investigation, is producing progressive results which we expect to continue over time.”
