'Detailed' search of Coventry flat in hunt for missing Shauna Lee

Police investigating the disappearance of a woman more than six months ago say they are carrying out a detailed examination of her last known address.

Shauna Lee, 36, was last seen on 10 November near her home in Meriden Street, Radford, Coventry,

Acting on intelligence from the public, her apartment is undergoing extensive forensic checks, police said.

Her belongings and personal items have previously been removed from the flat for analysis, in the hunt for her.

'Fine-toothed comb'

The examination using specialist dogs and lighting equipment started on Thursday, the spokesman added.

Despite appeals for information on her whereabouts and police enquiries, there have been no confirmed sightings of her since November and she has not been in contact with close friends or family.

Ch Insp Kerry Blakeman, form West Midlands Police, said: "Her disappearance can't be explained and according to family members is out of character for Shauna… they are very worried about her and say it was unusual for her not to be in contact, especially over the Christmas period."

He said officers would go through the property with a "fine-toothed comb"

"If there are any clues, even the tiniest fragment, which may shed light on what's happened to Shauna I'm confident we'll find it," he added.
