Police investigating the murder of a West Yorkshire teenager 20 years ago have staged a Twitter reconstruction of her disappearance.

The "tweeconstruction" follows the last known movements of Lindsay Rimer, 13, who was last seen in Hebden Bridge on 7 November 1994.

Her body was found five months later in the Rochdale Canal.

Detectives have carried out extensive inquiries since, but the killer has not been found.

'Misguided' loyalty

Det Supt Simon Atkinson said: "Someone, somewhere knows what happened to Lindsay and I am appealing directly to that person to come forward and help me bring closure to Lindsay's grieving family."

"You may have had suspicions about a friend or a loved one back in 1994 but never came forward out of a misguided sense of loyalty.

"The information may seem trivial to you but could be the final piece in the jigsaw needed to catch a killer."

Lindsay left her home on Cambridge Street, Hebden Bridge to buy some cornflakes from a shop on Crown Street, where she was last seen at 22:20 BST.

The "tweeconstruction", which took place earlier, charted Lindsay's last known movements, including significant times relating to her disappearance, as well as pictures and video.
