A man has been arrested by detectives investigating the murder of Charlotte Murray.

Charlotte Murray (34), who was originally from Omagh but had been living in Moy, was reported missing in May 2013. She had not been in contact with her family or friends since October/November 2012.

Police believe she was murdered.

A 46-year-old man was arrested in Dungannon on Monday morning on suspicion of murder. He has been taken to Dungannon Police Station where he is currently being questioned by detectives.

Detective Chief Inspector Eamonn Corrigan said:  “We continue to investigate Charlotte’s murder and I would appeal to anyone who has information to contact detectives in Gough on 101 extension 34233. Charlotte has been missing for five years and her family miss her and deserve and need to know what happened to her.”

Charlotte, who was one of 11 siblings, wasn't married and worked in the catering industry.

Last week her sisters Denise Murray and Emma Corrigan, and her nephew Troy Murray, joined with Detective Chief Inspector Eamonn Corrigan to renew their poignant appeal.
