Is body missing Alisa or Susan..?

One of the most recent disappearences in West Norfolk is that of Alisa Dmitrijeva.

The 17-year-old Latvian student was last seen on August 31, in Friars Street, King’s Lynn.

Miss Dmitrijeva was reported missing by a family member on September 6.

Since then, there have been a number of unconfirmed sightings and police have offered a £5,000 reward for information on her whereabouts.

Detectives have also said they want to trace the movements of a P-registered green Lexus GS300 car in connection with her disappearence. Today Cambridgeshire police said Miss Dmitrijeva was still missing.

Far closer to the scene Susan Murray, then 51, has not been seen since she went missing from an address in nearby Dersingham on January 3, 1980.

The case is one of a number of unsolved missing persons cases currently being reviewed by Norfolk police.

Detectives from the joint Norfolk and Suffolk Major Investigation Team are continuing to investigate the circumstances surrounding the death of a female whose body was discovered at Anmer on Sunday.

Results from samples which were taken during a post mortem at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital yesterday (Tuesday) afternoon have not provided a DNA profile, and therefore the identity of the victim has not been established.

Further testing is being carried out, which will take an additional 24 hours before results are available. Officers will also look at more traditional methods of identifying the victim, which may take longer.

The body is described as a young, white, adult female, aged between 15 and 23 years old, which has been at that site for a period estimated to be between a month and up to four months.

Further searches of the area around the site, off Kings Avenue in the village near King’s Lynn, will continue tomorrow (Thursday).

Meanwhile, police have not ruled out the possibility that the body found could be of missing teenager Alisa Dmitrijeva.

Latvian-born Miss Dmitrijeva, 17, was last seen in King’s Lynn on August 31. She was reported missing by a family member on September 6.

Since then, there have been a number of unconfirmed sightings and police have offered a £5,000 reward for information on her whereabouts.

Det Chief Insp Jes Fry, head of the Joint Norfolk and Suffolk Major Incident Team (MIT), said officers were examining cold cases nationwide for potential links.

Speaking near the wood where the grim discovery was made by a dog walker on New Year’s Day, DCI Fry said: “We are at the very early stages of the investigation and it could be a complex inquiry. The body had been there for some time.

“The circumstances suggest this is a murder case and we are looking at missing persons reports and cold cases both locally and nationwide.

“We will be looking at all missing persons and she [Miss Dmitrijeva] will be in the list of people to be eliminated,” he said.
