The latest bid to uncover the remains of vanished woman Lisa Dorrian have failed to discover her body.

Lisa Dorrian disappeared from a Co Down caravan site in 2005.

She was 25. Her disappearance is being treated as a murder investigation.

Her mother Pat died aged 59 at the end of last year without ever knowing where her body was.

The PSNI had been searching land at Newtownards Road on the outskirts of Comber since last week.

These searches have now concluded.

No human remains were found but police said a number of items have been removed for further examination.

Detective Chief Inspector Justyn Galloway, from Serious Crime Branch, said in a statement: “Our enquiries are continuing. We would again appeal to those individuals who know what happened to Lisa to provide that information.

“This would enable Lisa’s family to have some degree of closure as they face another anniversary of her disappearance in the coming days without the answers they so desperately crave and deserve.”
