Friends and family of missing Bangor woman Lisa Dorrian have attended a special ceremony at which a tree was planted in her memory.

Lisa's family picked a cherry blossom tree as a lasting memorial to the pretty 25-year-old shop assistant, who went missing from a caravan park in Ballyhalbert in February 2005.

It is hoped the tree, which has been planted in the grounds of Bangor Heritage Centre, will flower in time for what would have been Lisa's 27th birthday on June 12.

Also unveiled at yesterday's ceremony was a plaque designed by Lisa's friends, while a bench picked by Lisa's ex-boyfriend, Jamie Mills, was erected.

Around 70 people attended the emotional ceremony. Lisa's mother, Patricia, was comforted by Holywood woman Karen Kelly, whose 21-year-old son Martin has not been seen since leaving a pub on Belfast's docks New Year's Day.

Anyone with information on the murder is asked to contact the PSNI or call Crimestoppers in confidence on 0800 555111.
