DETECTIVES investigating the murder of Lisa Dorrian have concluded a search of land in the Comber area.
A spokesman said yesterday that “nothing of significance was found” and that inquiries are continuing.
The search began on October 16, although it is understood that the search was not for human remains.
The 25-year-old from Bangor was last seen at a party at a Ballyhalbert caravan site in Co Down on February 28, 2005.
Despite extensive land and sea searches, her body has never been found. No-one has been charged with her murder.
Ms Dorrian’s family made an appeal to the public to help them find her on the seventh anniversary of her disappearance in February.
The Dorrian family have tried a number of initiatives since she went missing, including linking up with Snow Patrol singer Gary Lightbody and releasing a short film at cinemas.
A £10,000 reward was also offered for information leading to the recovery of her body.
In 2006, Lisa’s mother Patricia Dorrian said: “We believe that people were scared to come forward at the start because of the paramilitary link to the investigation.
“The police have now ruled that out. It had nothing to do with paramilitaries.”
