Rachel Wilson – Fourteen Years On

As the 14th anniversary of Rachel Wilson’s disappearance approaches, Cleveland Police continues to investigate her murder.

The last sighting of Rachel is on CCTV footage which shows her in the Southfield Road area of Middlesbrough at 7.02am on the morning of 31st May 2002.  She was 19 years old at that time.
