In 1979 an east London schoolgirl called Suzanne Lawrence went missing from home and was never seen again.
Police launched a major hunt for the 14-year-old who vanished in late July 1979.
Suzanne and her sister, Michelle, told their mother they were going to stay with a female friend in Dagenham.
On August 7, 1979, Michelle returned home to Romford and said the sisters had been staying at a house in Highbury.
She said Suzanne would be coming home that night. But she never arrived.
