The searches at the property in Kimmeridge Close Nythe, Swindon, in relation to the murder of Sally Ann John, continue today with a team of officers working on the investigation.
Specialist officers and forensically trained Crime Scene Investigators will remain at the property until I am content that the entire location has been meticulously searched.
The officers are tasked to look for items which may be related to Sally Ann or may assist with the investigation into her death. Sally Ann was 23 years old when she went missing on 8th September 1995 from the Station Road, Alexandra Rd and Aylesbury Street area in Swindon. Her disappearance is being treated as a murder investigation.
I would like to reiterate my appeal for information regarding the disappearance of Sally Ann. We have received several new calls from members of public and I am positive that there are others out there who have information which could help us find answers to the questions Sally Ann’s family have been searching for, for the past twenty years.
We are working closely with Sally Ann’s family and keeping them updated with progress.
I would like to reiterate our thanks to the occupants of the house who have no involvement in this investigation and the local community for their assistance and co-operation.
A police presence remains in the Manchester Road area and officers are engaging with the public to raise awareness of the investigation and gather information.
The mobile police unit remains in the area and provides a point of contact for anyone who would like to speak in person to an officer about information regarding Sally Ann’s disappearance. Alternatively the team can be contacted in confidence via 101 or call Crimestoppers where information may be left anonymously if preferred.
