New search for Newry girl’s remains

August 4, 2014

Detectives from Serious Crime Branch investigating the murder of Caroline Graham who went missing from Portadown in 1989 will today (Monday) begin a renewed search operation in the town.

The search operation will take place at a property in Hanover Street where 19 year old Caroline lived.

Specially trained PSNI victim recovery dogs which can identify traces of human remains will be deployed. At this stage it is not possible to say how long the search will last but the officer leading the investigation, Detective Chief Inspector Peter Montgomery, said the renewed investigation into the teenager’s disappearance “was now at a point where it is appropriate to once again begin a planned search operation, primarily to locate Caroline’s remains but also as an important part of the overall investigation into her murder.”
