Lisa Dorrian Search Yields No Results

An extensive search for evidence pertaining to the case of a missing woman has yielded no results, police have said.

Detectives investigating the murder of Lisa Dorrian have completed a search of farmland near Comber, County Down.

Police revealed nothing of significance has been found.

It is thought the search was attempting to find a vehicle that could have been used in the murder.

The 25-year-old woman was last seen on 28 February at a party at a Ballyhalbert caravan site in County Down.

Lisa Dorrian’s body has never been found, despite extensive land and sea searches.

Several arrests have been made since her disappearance, but no-one has ever formally been charged with her murder.

The woman’s family had launched a public appeal to aid in the investigation on the seventh anniversary of her disappearance in February.

The Dorrian family has also tried various attempts at raising the profile of the case since she went missing, including linking up with Snow Patrol singer Gary Lightbody and releasing a short film at cinemas.

A £10,000 reward has been offered for information leading to the recovery of her body.

Now police have repeated an appeal for anyone with information to contact them on 0845 600 8000 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
