The grandmother of murdered teenager Alisa Dmitrijeva whose body was found on the Queen's Sandringham Estate in Norfolk on New Year's Day has appealed for information about her death.

The body of the 17-year-old Latvian was discovered by a dog walker at Anmer.

Alisa had been missing from her home in Wisbech since August 2011.

Her grandmother, Lidija Nesterova, said: "I'm worried I won't be alive to see... people punished."

She added: "Last year we had hoped that we would see Alisa alive - this year we have nothing. The pain a year on is still raw.

"We cannot live without the answers to so many of our questions, questions that not even the police can answer so please can the person who knows what happened to Alisa come forward.

'Case not closed'

"Please help the police if you have anything to say - we believe someone is too scared to talk, but please speak up, we wait for your news."

The Norfolk and Suffolk Major Investigation Team said it was renewing an appeal for information about the death as the anniversary of the discovery of the body approached.

Det Insp Marie James said: "This will be a difficult time of year for Alisa's family, and I would urge anyone with information about her disappearance and death to come forward, so we can give them some answers.

"Two men who were arrested in connection with Alisa's death were released from their bail conditions without charge in September 2012. This does not mean that the case is closed - any new information we receive will be looked into and we are continuing to prepare a file for the coroner for inquest."

An inquest will be held at a later date.
