Sandringham murder update: Police appeal for help in tracing Wisbech teen’s last movements

INTERPRETERS are standing by as police appeal to members of the Eastern European community for information about the last movements of murdered Wisbech teenager Alisa Dmitrijeva.

Her remains were found by a dog walker on the Royal Estate at Sandringham in Norfolk on New Year’s Day - almost four months after she was last seen in Friars Street in King’s Lynn.

DNA taken from the body confirmed it was that of Latvian-born Alisa, 17, who was reported missing from her home in Wisbech on September 6.

Det Chief Insp Jes Fry said: “Now that we have identified Alisa, we can carry out more focused inquiries to establish what happened to her.

“We particularly want to speak to anyone who may have seen Alisa between noon Tuesday, August 30; and midnight on Tuesday, September 6.

“We particularly want to speak to people within the Latvian, Lithuanian and Russian communities in these areas, and are working with local groups and individuals who may be able to assist.

“We have access to a language line and interpreters who can help anyone calling in with information to Norfolk Constabulary.”

Police have already spoken to a number of members of Royal staff, including grooms and a gamekeeper.

After a number of unconfirmed sightings police offered a �5,000 reward for information on her whereabouts.

Detectives also appealed for information regarding the movements of a P-registered green Lexus GS300 car in connection with her disappearance.

The vehicle was seen at Heacham - five miles from where the body was found - around the same time.

Officers have also been using social media in an effort to track down the teenager and have created Facebook pages in English, Latvian and Lithuanian.

Det Chief Insp Fry also said: “We are also still keen to speak to anyone who was working in the Anmer area, specifically between August 30 and September 6, and anyone who held or was involved in organising any kind of function at Sandringham or neighbouring parishes during that time.”

Anyone with any information relating to the incident should contact the Joint Norfolk and Suffolk Major Investigation Team at Norfolk Constabulary on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
