Detectives investigating the disappearance of Caroline Graham have told Newry Times they have launched a murder inquiry.

Caroline several years before her disappearance when she was a teenager

Newry woman Caroline, who went missing from her home in Portadown in April 1989, was just 19 years old when she disappeared. She was living with her boyfriend in Hanover Street at the time of her disappearance but was originally from the Newry area. Newry Times understands she was living in the Portadown area for around two years before her disappearance. Officers have carried out a number of extensive searches in the area surrounding her home over the years but Caroline’s body has not yet been located. Detectives have now a number of new lines of inquiry and are appealing for anyone who may have any information about Caroline’s disappearance to contact them on 0845 600 8000 or directly on 028 9070 0727 or the office mobile on 075 8522 8283. Alternatively, people can provide information without giving their details to the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111. Local SDLP MLA Dominic Bradley spoke to Newry Times about the murder inquiry. He stated, “This is a very difficult time for the Graham family and our thoughts and prayers are with them at this time. They have gone through so much since Caroline’s disappearance.” “Whilst this was some twenty three years ago, I would appeal for anyone who may think they remember the smallest detail to come forward and assist in this new inquiry and give the Graham family the closure they so much desire.” More to follow.
