A MAN HAS been arrested on suspicion of the murder of Charlotte Murray.

Her family and police made a fresh appeal last week on the fifth anniversary of her disappearance.

Charlotte was reported missing in May 2013 but had not been in contact with family or friends since October/November 2012. She was originally from Omagh but had been living in Moy.

This morning detectives from Serious Crime Branch arrested a 46-year-old man in Dungannon. He was taken to Dungannon Police Station where he is being questioned by detectives.

Detective Chief Inspector Eamonn Corrigan said, “We continue to investigate Charlotte’s murder and I would appeal to anyone who has information to contact detectives in Gough on 101 extension 34233.

“Charlotte has been missing for five years and her family miss her and deserve and need to know what happened to her.”

Speaking on behalf of the family last week, Charlotte’s twin sister Denise Murray, said: “Our sister Charlotte’s disappearance is one of the most horrific experiences we have ever faced in our lives.

Since our sister went missing in late 2012 our emotions have been all over the place. Hope has been our friend in this nightmare so far and we cling on to it. Guilt is one emotion we all feel.

“We feel guilty about going on with our everyday lives as Charlotte will never get the opportunity to continue on with hers.”
