PSNI Detective Chief Inspector Justyn Galloway said enquiries are still continuing, however there are no plans for any further searches.

He said: "We would again appeal to those individuals who know what happened to Lisa to provide that information. This would enable Lisa's family to have some degree of closure and give them the answers they so desperately crave and deserve."

No-one has been charged with her murder.
