Man arrested over murder of teenager Caroline Graham in 1989 is released

A 53-year-old man arrested in relation to the murder of Portadown teenager Caroline Graham 25 years ago has been released.

He was being held on suspicion of murder and possession of a firearm.

Police have said he has since been released.

Fresh PSNI searches of a property in Portadown where Caroline Graham lived with her boyfriend when she disappeared in 1989 continued this week.

Forensic scientists had been called in to examine items found by specially-trained dogs at a former house of a teenager who was murdered 25 years ago.

The specially trained dogs that can identify traces of human remains were brought into the police hunt for the body of the 19-year-old on Monday.

Caroline had been for a night out to The Coach nightclub in Banbridge with a girlfriend.

She stayed part of the night with her friend in a hostel in Portadown but was gone in the morning. The search was launched at the property after new information about the teenager's disappearance was received.

Police said that the property's current owner is not involved in the probe.

Detectives from the serious crime branch investigating the murder called in specialist forensic scientists to examine items in a house at Hanover Street in Portadown where Caroline had lived.
