Claudia Lawrence: Mother believes daughter is 'being held'

Seven years on from the disappearance of Claudia Lawrence, her mother believes she is alive and "being held somewhere against her will".

The chef from York, North Yorkshire, went missing in March 2009 at the age of 35.

It was recently revealed that four men held as part of the police investigation would not face charges.

Speaking to BBC Look North, Joan Lawrence said: "I have no instinct whatsoever that she isn't alive".
