Relaid floor key to new appeal over missing girl

Police investigating the murder of Caroline Graham have appealed to builders for information about a floor that may have been relaid in 1989.

Yesterday officers said they were ceasing searches for the remains of the 19-year-old who went missing in the same year, after they received new information.

But they later urged builders or anyone with information about a floor that was dug up and relaid in the Carleton Street area during Easter in 1989 to contact them.

The floor could be internal or external.

Officers had been carrying out a large search operation in Portadown, Co Armagh, for the past two weeks.

Detective Chief Inspector Gary Crawford said: “We are extremely grateful to members of the public who have come forward with information to assist our enquiries.

“This information will require further assessment and planning before the investigation can continue in its search phase.”

The investigation, which started after new information was obtained in August, has focused on ground near the Hanover Street flat where Caroline had been living with her boyfriend.
