Fresh appeal for Caroline Graham who went missing 23 years ago
Police investigating the murder of Caroline Graham have made an urgent appeal to speak to anyone who lived near her at the time.

PSNI ARE APPEALING again for urgent information about the disappearance and murder of teenager, Caroline Graham and want to speak to anyone who lived near her at the time of her disappearance 23 years ago.

Police are specifically looking for people who lived in Carlton Street, Hanover Street or Church Street in Portadown in 1989 and can remember details about buildings which were either under construction or being renovated at that time.

The officer in charge of the investigation, Detective Chief Inspector Gary Crawford, said:

We are making progress in terms of eliminating possible deposition sites but we need more assistance from people who lived here or worked here in 1989.

I would ask anyone who thinks they can help to come and speak to search teams in Carleton Street as soon as they can or contact us on 075 85 22 82 83. Members of the public have come forward with information but we need more assistance if we are going to be able to return Caroline’s remains to her family after all these years and progress the investigation.

Caroline was 19-years-old and was living with her boyfriend in nearby Hanover Street at the time of her disappearance but was originally from Newry. It’s understood she had been living in the Portadown area for around two years before her disappearance.

Nobody has ever been charged in connection with her disappearance and the case was reopened in August when the PSNI said it had received new information, including a possible location of her remains.
