The sister of murdered Middlesbrough teenager Rachel Wilson has spoken to Capital.

Rachel, from Grove Hill, was only 19 years old when she was last seen on the 31st May 2002.

A major police investigation began at the time with hundreds of lines of enquiry and numerous media appeals - including personal appeals from Rachel's mum Tina Wilson.

It continued over the following years, but no one ever knew what had happened to her. 

In June 2012, human remains were found in a secluded location at Newham Hall Farm on the outskirts of Middlesbrough.

These were confirmed as being those of Rachel and a new murder investigation was launched.

Rachel was finally laid to rest in September 2012, 10 years after her family last saw her alive.

Rachel's sister Nicola has been speaking to Capital:

People with information can phone Cleveland Police on 101 or the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
