Anniversary appeal over Anmer death
27 December 2012
As the anniversary of the discovery of the body of a teenager at
Anmer approaches, officers from the Norfolk and Suffolk Major
Investigation Team are renewing an appeal for information about her
Seventeen-year-old Alisa Dmitrijeva went missing from her home
in Wisbech in August 2011. Her remains were found by a dog walker
in a copse on arable land at Anmer, near Sandringham, on New Year’s
Detective Inspector Marie James said: “This will be a difficult
time of year for Alisa’s family, and I would urge anyone with
information about her disappearance and death to come forward, so
we can give them some answers.
“Two men who were arrested in connection with Alisa’s death were
released from their bail conditions without charge in September
2012. This does not mean that the case is closed – any new
information we receive will be looked into and we are continuing to
prepare a file for the coroner for inquest.”
Alisa’s grandmother has described how her family is coping now.
“Last year we had hope that we would see Alisa alive – this year we
have nothing. The pain a year on is still raw.
“We cannot live without the answers to so many of our questions,
questions that not even the police can answer so please can the
person who knows what happened to Alisa come forward. I’m worried I
won’t be alive to see these people punished.
“Please help the police if you have anything to say - we believe
someone is too scared to talk, but please speak up, we wait for
DI James is asking people to think back to the summer of 2011.
“Whilst Alisa’s body was found at Anmer a year ago, the key time we
need information on is when she was last seen at the end of August
last year, and so we remain keen to hear from anyone who has any
information on her movements in the King’s Lynn and Wisbech areas
between Tuesday 30 August and Tuesday 6 September 2011.”
