Forensic re-examination of Claudia's home

The forensic re-examination of Claudia's home supports the favoured theory that she left the house on the morning of Thursday 19 March 2009 without any obvious sign of a disturbance at the property.

However, using advanced techniques not available in 2009, additional finger prints were found throughout the house that need to be identified by the investigation team.

Det Supt Malyn said: “We are keen to eliminate people who have been inside Claudia’s home before and after her disappearance.

“The elimination process is simple, we just encourage people to come forward. Not doing so only raises questions as to why you wouldn’t.

“There is also other DNA material from items examined in the house that have been recovered. Forensic work is ongoing in respect of these items.”

Update 17 April: Due to ongoing elimination work, a number of finger prints have been identified and eliminated from the investigation. The review team thank people for their co-operation with this work as they continue to obtain elimination samples.
