Peter Lawrence, the father of Claudia Lawrence is set to make his first public appeal for information about his daughter outside of England. Mr Lawrence will be handing out leaflets and posters in both Edinburgh Waverley and Glasgow Central station on Friday 16th October.
Martin Dales, a friend of Peter Lawrence said: ” The idea is very much that the Police have been everywhere and worked very hard. The whole thing is a complete and utter mystery. Peter feels the need to appeal to the Scottish public to be vigilant as we all travel a lot, so in remote places just to check out buildings and keep their eyes peeled.”
Seven months ago on March 18th, Claudia 35, was last seen leaving the University of York’s Goodricke College wearing a white T-shirt, blue jeans and trainers. She worked at the University as a chef and she was seen leaving at the end of her shift at about 3pm.
“The appeal is also to remind people what Claudia looks like. Peter finds it very difficult to speak about but you never know who you could speak to that could know something. We have been friends for 25 years and this is why I set this up. Anyone could know anything about her disappearance”
Last month the investigation reached Cyprus as it was thought that the young chef could be there. This was after an analysis of her mobile phone showed that the last text message received was sent from a phone in Cyprus.
Although Claudia left her cards, cash and passport behind, her mobile phone and blue ‘karrimor’ bag which held her chefs whites have still to be found.
Her disappearance is being treated as suspected murder. Peter Lawrence believe that Claudia could be anywhere in the UK or abroad.
