POLICE IN NORTHERN Ireland who are investigating the 1989 murder of missing teenager Caroline Graham in Portadown have appealed to the person who sent them a map of the area to contact them.

The PSNI say they need to clarify details with regards to the map and have assured the person who sent it that they will be dealt with in a “absolute confidence” if they come forward.

Caroline, 19, was living with her boyfriend in Hanover Street in Portadown when she went missing in April 1989. Originally from Newry, she had been living in Portadown for around two years when she disappeared.

Nobody was ever charged in connection with her disappearance but the case was reopened earlier this year after new information emerged.

Since then police have been conducting a series of searches on waste ground and in premises in the Carleton Street area in recent weeks but search activity is currently suspended.

“We are grateful to this person for providing information but we need to clarify some details,” the officer leading the investigation, Detective Chief Inspector Gary Crawford, said.

“I can assure the person who took the trouble to send us the map that we will deal with them and their information in absolute confidence.”

Detectives investigating the case have asked members of the public with information to contact them on a special mobile number + 44 (0) 7585 228 283.
