Miss­ing chef’s fam­ily in Xmas wreath hor­ror

Midweek Sport - - SHOW & TELL -

THE dad of miss­ing chef Claudia Lawrence has urged a mys­tery well-wisher to stop adding to the fam­ily’s mis­ery at Christ­mas.

An anony­mous wreath ap­peared on the Lawrence fam­ily door for the third con­sec­u­tive year on Xmas Day.

Each Christ­mas since Claudia’s mys­tery dis­ap­pear­ance in 2009, an elab­o­rate hand-made wreath has been left.

Martin Dales, fam­ily friend and spokesper­son for Claudia’s fa­ther, Peter Lawrence, said: “It is ap­pre­ci­ated what the sen­ti­ment may be be­hind the wreath, but Peter doesn’t find it very help­ful.

“The sig­nif­i­cance of a wreath makes it very dif­fi­cult for the fam­ily and he would like who­ever is do­ing it to stop.”

Claudia, who was born in Dar­ling­ton and brought up in Mal­ton, was 35 when she went miss­ing from her York home in March 2009.

She worked as a chef at York Univer­sity and no trace of her has ever been found.
