Following the death of both Claudia's father Peter and his friend Martin Dales this web site will close in mid 2024. Thank you for your interest and let's hope that one day, this mystery will be resolved.

150 months - still no Claudia
Martin Dales, the late Peter Lawrence’s friend & spokesman said,
This is very sad news that, despite these recent detailed and extensive searches by the police, there remains no further information on the whereabouts of Claudia Lawrence for the 150 months she has now been missing.
“This is totally unsatisfactory and grossly unfair and cruel on all who care about Claudia. How many more times have family, friends and police got to appeal for the information needed to be with the police to bring closure, good or bad, for this seemingly never ending nightmare.”
Thanks, Martin

Following a short illness, Peter Lawrence OBE died aged 74 on Thursday 11th February 2021 in St Leonard’s Hospice,York and his private funeral took place on Thursday 11th March. He will be sorely missed by his family and friends who request privacy at this sad time and there will be no further comments from the family.
It is sad that nearly 12 years after Claudia’s disappearance from York Peter never found out what has happened to her. He was a very private person thrust into the full glare of the media and despite a tireless campaign to find her, he also selflessly devoted himself to helping others with missing relatives through the charity Missing People.

He also utilised his legal background to persuade Parliament to bring in firstly changes to the Presumption of Death Act and then the  creation  of the new Guardianship (Missing Persons) Act, known as Claudia’s Law,  to assist people in dealing with the financial & business affairs of a missing person and for this work he received the OBE in 2018.
Despite Peter’s death, the message remains the same - where is Claudia?  Anyone with information should contact North Yorkshire Police on 101.

It's 12 years since Claudia disappeared, a message from Martin Dales.

Peter Lawrence, Claudia's father
Thank you for visiting this website dedicated to finding my daughter Claudia who for some inexplicable reason went missing from her home in York sometime after March 18th 2009.  Thursday 27th February 2014 is Claudia’s 40th birthday, so please remember the family and friends as they live the day without Claudia. It is every parent's worst nightmare when something like this happens and the times the family are living through are indescribably difficult.
We have, however, been much supported by people's prayers and compassionate thoughts and now our only desire is for Claudia to return to her family and friends  If you can help us in our search, we would be most grateful and the police will appreciate every piece of information you might be able to give them.

Claudia documentary feature on Judge Rinder's Crime Stories ITV
Tuesday March 17th 2-3pm

The tragic story of missing York chef Claudia Lawrence will be the subject of Judge John Rinder’s Crime Stories on the eve of the 11th anniversary of her last being heard from.

It has been nearly 11 years since York chef Claudia Lawrence mysteriously disappeared, leading to one of the most high-profile missing person cases this country has ever seen. Now, following the 10th anniversary of her disappearance, Claudia’s parents, friend Jen and local journalist Mike Laycock relive the past decade and tell of the police investigation and review that led to nine arrests and interviews under caution, but still no convictions.

Peter Lawrence, Claudia’s father said,

“Over the years, there has been much news coverage, articles, books, films and documentaries about Claudia but as yet nothing has come of finding out what has happened to her.

“I very much hope that on the 11th anniversary of Claudia missing this programme will shed some new light on this ongoing tragedy and help the family & friends to have answers to the question: where is Claudia?”

The programme will be transmitted from 2-3pm on Tuesday March 17th on ITV.

Its 10 years since Claudia dissapeared.
The BBC have published a report to mark 10 years...

Claudia Lawrence’s house remains empty, preserved by her family in the hope she might one day return. For more, please click here to read the BBC Report.
