A website set up by the family of missing Bangor woman Lisa Dorrian has taken five million hits in just over a week.

The Lisa Dorrian site was launched shortly before Christmas in a bid to help locate the remains of the missing 25-year-old.

Since the launch, thousands have logged onto the site to learn more about Lisa's disappearance and the family's campaign to find her remains.

At one stage last week the site was taking so many hits, it crashed every hour.

Lisa has not been seen since she disappeared from a caravan park at Ballyhalbert in Co Down in Febraury last year.

Her family and police believe she was murdered and that her body was dumped.

Several individuals with links to paramilitary groups are suspected of being involved in her disappearance.

But despite numerous appeals, including on Crimewatch, the family and police have still been unable to find her remains.

Lisa's sister Joanne said the family was pleased that so many people were logging onto the site.

"People even took the time on Christmas Day to visit this site and leave messages of support for our family," she said.

"It is very touching that they would take the time to think about us at this time.

"We have been contacted by people from all over the world, places as far apart as Tokyo and Oklahoma."

Joanne said there had been a number of confidential messages left on the website from people close to suspects and that she was hopeful something would develop from that.

"I would hope that the people involved would find it in their hearts to come forward," she said.
