Hi all I am just posting this in order to keep Joannes name in the public domain- This case is very mysterious and so far the police have no real leads although her parents suspect she has been abducted!

The link is below- straught-parents-Jo-Yeates-plead-help-finding-miss ing-architect-daughter.html

Hopefully someone has the information needed to bring Joanna hope safe and well- her parents are distraught!

i always wonder why some cases are more high profile than others - this doesnt seem to be top news despite a young woman (with no previous history of going missing) disappearing and all her stuff being left behind in her flat.

Really hope they make it a bit more high profile and get some answers (good or bad) soon!

I think its a bit off blaming the boyfriend with no evidence whatsoever hmm

He wasn't even in the area when the last CCTV images were taken!

This case reminds me a lot of Claudia Lawrence she just suddenly vanished into thin air too .

I hope she is found soon her parents and boyfriend all look so wretched.

I hope she is found safe and well, like others have said though has become very high profile when lots of people disappear every day.

I read today that her boyfriend was staying with his brother. When asked about it by the press his brother said ' the police have all the times. I'm not sure if I'm supposed to say anything else' - now I think that's an A grade weird thing to say. I also read yesterday that the police weren't sure if she'd left by foot or on her bike. Eh? Surely they know if her bike's missing? All very, very odd.

Regarding 'blaming' anyone - we all know that partners and relations are responsible for the deaths of far more women than 'strangers'. It's not particularly nice to speculate about this guy - but you can be very sure the police are looking very, very hard at him.

agree a bit off blaming the boyfriend at this stage.

I just don't understand how someone can just disappear.

iirc wasn't claudia lawrence reported to be a prostitute, so unfortunately far more likelyhood of meeting some unsavery character.. sad

Totoros, from past examples the police often put the suspect on the tv to get psychologists to examine them, the partner is normally the top suspect in such cases and they will be watching him!

Claudia Lawrence is local to me and no she wasn't a prostitute. She seems to have had a fairly lively love life possibly involved with married men. I firmly believe she was killed by a partner/ex partner. It's not clear at what point she disappeared - the police know when she got home I think - but after that it's a blank. The assumption is she left for work in the morning - but nothing to prove that.

Maybe other poster meant due to excessive sleeping around and bedding married men, that Caludia put herself at risk, who knows it is sad regarless if she was a prostitute or was a bit loose, she was a human being and she had family and friends who loved her, and no one had the right to hurt her!

There was also something in the Daily Mail about the pizza she bought in tesco on her way home, its the only thing other than her that is also unaccounted for.

scarletbegonia Thu 23-Dec-10 18:25:51

Just heard on the radio that the police are treating the missing pizza as significant.

Whatever has happened its an awful time for her family.

MummieHunnie Thu 23-Dec-10 18:28:45

What is the pizza thing all about then?

Katz Thu 23-Dec-10 18:32:59

She bought a pizza in tesco on her way home, however there is no trace of the pizza or its packing - it would seem that it could be with her, or the only thing she took with her when she left.

TheCrackFox Thu 23-Dec-10 18:34:25

She bought a pizza on the way home, however, there are no pizza/pizza box in her home.

Her poor family. I hope they get some answers soon as it must be torture not knowing.

MummieHunnie Thu 23-Dec-10 18:36:03

So are they thinking she bought the pizza to go to take with her to have for dinner with someone?

AuntBessieIsComingForXmas Thu 23-Dec-10 18:36:19

It's all very odd and very very sad. I cannot imagine what on earth her family/bf are going through. It must hurt so much

singingcat Thu 23-Dec-10 18:38:50

Sadly I think if someone has been missing for 5 days and not a peep, then something very bad has happened sad

TotorosOcarnina Thu 23-Dec-10 18:39:50

the pizza thing is weird

if she left her phone and keys at home then you can assume she arrived back from buying the pizza,

theres no wrapper at the flat

so it would seem she has bought a pizza, gone home and then left again, leaving everything she owns including her purse, keys, mobile phone... but HAS taken the pizza with her?? confused

expatinscotland Thu 23-Dec-10 18:41:49

Who knows? Odds are, however, as she was not connected to drugs or prostitution, she's dead.

MummieHunnie Thu 23-Dec-10 18:41:49

Toros, yes you would at least take your keys with you if you were going to a mates with a pizza wouldn't you? So are they thinking that who ever took her took the pizza also, so they must want to check bins for the wrappings then?

TotorosOcarnina Thu 23-Dec-10 18:42:55

i think so mummie,

no idea why someone would do that though.

unless she 'lost' the pizza on the way home?! which seem even more unlikely.

MummieHunnie Thu 23-Dec-10 18:44:26

I imagine that is the sort of kick a socio/pshycopath would get, and they probably enjoyed eating the pizza as well, sick!

nigglewiggle Thu 23-Dec-10 18:45:30

I'm afraid it seems fairly clear what has happened. Very sad for her parents.
