This story is over

The niece of a woman who disappeared in Cleethorpes 10 years ago today has released an emotional appeal asking the community to help find out what happened to her aunt.

Karen Black has not been seen since she went missing from Cleethorpes on or around Thursday, November 9, 2006.

Four men, aged 40, 54, 45 and 58 all from the Cleethorpes area were arrested on suspicion of murder but released without charge.

Karen, from Worksop, would be aged 46 now.

Her niece Roxanne Davis said: “We can’t live our life not knowing what’s happened.

“My nan is in her 60s now, she doesn’t know what’s happened (to her daughter).

“If someone knows something, they should help the police with their investigation.”

Detective Inspector Andy Bateman of Nottinghamshire Police said: “This is a heart-breaking appeal from a girl who loved her aunt very much and I’m now appealing to the people of Cleethorpes within this tight-knit community because I do believe that someone somewhere has that piece of information that could provide the assistance we need and subsequently the closure for the family.

“I really would encourage anyone to ring in no matter how small the detail may be and use the Crimestoppers number if you need to.”

If anyone has any information that could help, please contact Nottinghamshire or Humberside Police on 101 quoting incident 502 of 8 November.

Alternatively, you can call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
