Police investigating the murder of missing Co Down woman Lisa Dorrian said today they believed her body may have been dumped at sea up to six months after she disappeared.
Lisa, 25, has not been seen since February 28 last year when she left a party on a seaside caravan park a few miles down the coast from her Bangor home.
Detective superintendent George Hamilton, who had been leading efforts to find her body and track the killers, said the police service now believed her body may have been secreted on land for several months before being taken out to sea some time between late June and early August last year.
Speaking at a news conference in Bangor he appealed for help from the public, in finding both her first and final resting place.
The Dorrian family, only recently given the news by the police that they believed the shop assistant had been dumped at sea, attended the news conference and the missing woman’s younger sister Joanne made a tearful plea for information.
