POLICE are continuing to search for the body of missing Suzy Lamplugh.

An eyewitness said temporary traffic lights have been installed on the B4084, near Drakes Broughton, to allow officers to search on one side of the road.

The traffic lights have caused long queues as vehicles are funnelling into a single lane.

Police have returned to the area to search for missing Suzy, an estate agent who disappeared in July 1986. They previously searched a field near to Pershore in 2010.

Police vans were first spotted in a layby off the B4084 just outside Drakes Broughton, with officers digging in the field behind, last week.

Now, police have been seen using probing poles to search the ground systematically next to the road, in the direction to the entrance of Drakes Broughton, as they look for vital clues to aid the investigation.

Undergrowth some distance from the road is reportedly being searched as well.

A spokesman for the Metropolitan Police, which are heading the search in partnership with West Mercia, said the search is on-going but would not disclose a date for the work to finish.

Officers are securing the scene at night so the scene is not contaminated.

Suzy Lamplugh, born in Cheltenham, went missing after arranging to meet with a client. She was officially declared dead, presumed murdered, in 1994.

Her disappearance has been an enduring mystery for more than 30 years.

Anyone with information that could assist the investigation is asked to call officers on 0207 230 4294.
