Sea link in missing woman probe


Lisa Dorrian went missing in February last year

The body of a murdered County Down woman may have been dumped at sea, police have said.

Lisa Dorrian, 25, was last seen at a party on a caravan site in Ballyhalbert on 28 February 2005. Despite extensive searches her body has never been found.

Detectives said they thought the Bangor shop assistant's body may have been moved months after the murder from a hiding place on land.

Police also renewed their appeal for information over the murder.

Ms Dorrian's family attended Wednesday's launch of the renewed appeal which came a week before the anniversary of her killing.

Detectives are asking anyone who owns outhouses or sheds on the Ards peninsula and may have been aware of suspicious activity there to contact them.

They are also appealing for members of fishing and boating communities for help in tracing the movement of a red or orange day cruiser type boat which they believe may have been used to move Lisa's body in July or August of 2005.

Her family have offered a £10,000 reward for information leading to the recovery of Lisa's body.
