Caroline Graham search – police appeal to map sender

November 20, 2012

Detectives investigating the murder of Newry teenager Caroline Graham in 1989, have appealed to a person who sent them a map, to contact them.

Caroline, who was 19 at the time, went missing in Portadown, in April 1989.  She was living in Hanover Street, Portadown with her boyfriend at the time of her disappearance.

Police have recently reopened the investigation into her disappearance and renewed search activity had been conducted in the Carleton Street area of the town over the past number of weeks for her remains.

Areas of waste ground and parts of premises, including a well, were searched. A range of specialist resources were deployed including body recovery dogs, probes, scanners, structural engineers and an underwater search team.  Police suspended the search activity with nothing of significance having been found, but say the key to recovering her remains and catching her killer lies with a small group of local people.

In the latest appeal by police, detectives say the information contained in the map of the area they were sent requires some clarification.

Detective Chief Inspector Gary Crawford, said: “We are grateful to this person for providing information but we need to clarify some details.

“We will deal with them and their information in absolute confidence.”

Mr Crawford advised that the number to call is 07585 228283.
