The home of missing York chef Claudia Lawrence is being searched by police as they review the investigation into her four-year disappearance.

Detectives believe Miss Lawrence, who was last seen on 18 March 2009, aged 35, was murdered.

Her father Peter Lawrence said the fresh look by North Yorkshire Police's new major crime unit offered hope.

"Any opportunity at all to find out for the family and friends what happened to Claudia is obviously to be welcomed."
