Footwear found during Burghfield pond search in missing person case

More news, no ads


Police began underwater searches of two ponds in Burghfield yesterday (Monday), after new information came to light in the missing person's case of Tilehurst woman Catherine Nee, who was last seen by her family in 2002.
Thames Valley Police spokeswoman Connie Primmer said it was not yet clear if the footwear was linked to Ms Nee's case and was being sent away for analysis.
Searches will continue tomorrow (Thursday).
Also known as Kathy, Ms Nee is last known to have been living in Ilfracombe, Devon, in 2002, but was known to have links to both Newbury and Reading.

A missing persons investigation was launched by Thames Valley Police in 2012, and that December a 47-year-old Reading man was arrested on suspicion of her murder but was later released without charge.
Det Insp Kev Mahon from the Major Crime department said: “Catherine became estranged from her family 14 years ago and in that time they have made attempts to try and find her to no avail and have constantly wondered what happened to her.
“They turned to Thames Valley Police for our assistance in 2012 to try and trace her and our investigation has led us to this point.
“In the meantime we are continuing to appeal to anyone who knew Catherine, who was also known as Kathy, or has any information of her whereabouts, to get in touch.”
Anyone with information is urged to contact Det Insp Mahon via the Thames Valley Police Enquiry Centre on 101.
