Originally from Riga in Latvia, Miss Dmitrijeva arrived in England two years ago when her father Olegs and her younger sister Viktorija came to live with her grandmother in a rented semi-detached house in Wisbech.

Although the last confirmed sighting of her was on August 31, detectives also believe she had attended a beach party at Snettisham on the night of August 30.

Officers searched the beach in January for clues, including Miss Dmitrijeva’s mobile phone, which has not yet been recovered.

Her body was cremated in King’s Lynn and transported to Latvia where the ashes were interred in a cemetery just outside Riga.
