Police investigating the disappearance 33 years ago of estate Suzy Lamplugh are searching land in Worcestershire following “new information”.
The body of Ms Lamplugh, who disappeared from London in 1986, has never been found and her killer never charged.
Metropolitan Police officers are now searching areas of land in Pershore.
Ms Lamplugh’s family has been notified and police will remain at the scene until a “thorough search” is complete.
A spokesperson from the Metropolitan Police added the force received new information relating to Ms Lamplugh’s disappearance following the publicity around the search of a property in Sutton Coldfield in November 2018.
Investigators searched the home in north east Birmingham – which once belonged to the mother of prime suspect John Cannan – for two weeks.
Cannan, 64, who is serving a life sentence for the abduction and murder of Bristol newlywed Shirley Banks, was named as a suspect in Ms Lamplugh’s murder in 2002.
No evidence was found in the search of the garden and garage of the semi-detached house on Shipton Road and the case was left open.
