A Book, which examines her mysterious disappearance, has been launched.

The author, Neil Root, wrote the book with help from her family and friends. It’s hoped that the book, called ‘Gone’, could find them answers.

North Yorkshire police say they are still determination to find out what happened to her and the search hasn't 'diminished'.

Detective Inspector Adrian Gathercole, the Deputy Senior Investigating Officer, said:

“Claudia’s disappearance continues to capture the interest of the public and media alike. This is in no small part due to the efforts of Claudia’s family and friends who continue to work tirelessly to ensure that Claudia is not forgotten.

 “Her silver Samsung D900 mobile phone and blue and grey Karrimor Spectre 10 rucksack remain unaccounted for. As with many investigations one vital piece of information could make the difference and enable us to complete the picture and finally resolve Claudia’s disappearance.

North Yorkshire Police will be marking the four years since Claudia went missing by using Twitter to promote the appeal by recalling the key times leading up to her disappearance.
