Appeal: Did you know missing east London teenager Suzanne Lawrence, last seen in Highbury in 1979?
PUBLISHED: 07:00 07 April 2018
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.
Her mother Pauline Lawrence, of Leamington Road, Harold Hill, made press appeals pleading for her daughter’s safe return.
Police had a theory Suzanne may have joined up with a Highbury fairground after a reported sighting.
But the Naeve School pupil was never found.
