The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Paulstainton - By Stephenbriggs

The grand­mother of a mur­dered Wis­bech teenager has made an emo­tional plea for in­for­ma­tion a year af­ter the girl’s body was found on a Royal es­tate. Seven­teen- year- ol d Alisa Dmitri­jeva went miss­ing from her Wis­bech home in Au­gust 2011.

Her­body­was­found­i­nafield at An­mer, just two miles from the Royal Fam­ily’s San­dring­ham House, on New Year’s Day last year by a dog walker.

Now, on the an­niver­sary of the dis­cov­ery of Lat­vian- born Alisa’s body, her grand­mother has made a new plea for in­for­ma­tion.

She said: “Last year we had hope that we would see Alisa alive – this year we have noth­ing. The pain a year on is still raw.

“We can­not live with­out the an­swers to so many of our ques­tions, ques­tions that not even the po­lice can an­swer. So please can the per­son who knows what hap­pened to Alisa come for­ward. I’m wor­ried I won’t be alive to see th­ese peo­ple pun­ished.

“Please help the po­lice if you have any­thing to say – we be­lieve some­one is too scared to talk, but please speak up, we wait for your news.”

Alisa was last seen get­ting into a green Lexus in King’s Lynn on Au­gust 31, 2011. A month later, No­folk po­lice an­nouncedthey­w­ere­hand­ingthe case to the coro­ner, as they did nothavee­nough­in­for­ma­tionto pros­e­cute any­one for caus­ing Alisa’s death. They had pre­vi­ously ar­rested two menon­sus­pi­cion of mur­der, but­they­were later re­leased with­out charge.

De­tec­tive In­spec­tor Marie James said: “This will be a dif­fi­cult time of year for Alisa’s fam­ily, andI­woul­durgeany­one with­in­for­ma­tion­aboutherdis­ap­pear­ance and death to come for­ward, so we can give them some an­swers.”

Any­one with in­for­ma­tion should con­tact Nor­folk po­lice on101, orCrimestop­pers, anony­mously, on 0800 555 111.

Po­lice are still anx­ious for in­for­ma­tion about Alisa’s dis­ap­pear­ance.
