A reward of up to £4,000 is being offered to help catch the killer of a teenage girl in Norwich 19 years ago.

Natalie Pearman, 16, who worked as a prostitute in the city, was last seen in Rouen Road, early on 20 November 1992.

Her body was found hours later in a lay-by at Ringland by a lorry driver on his way to work.

Crimestoppers, which is offering the reward, said police particularly wanted to trace a potential witness.

The charity said the reward would be for information leading to a conviction over the murder.

A post-mortem examination revealed Natalie had been suffocated.

'Searching for answers'

Ann Scott, Crimestoppers eastern regional manager, said they particularly wanted to hear from a caller who had recently told police they believed they had seen Natalie get into a car that night in King Street.

She said: "This murder has robbed a family of their young daughter and they are still searching for answers 19 years on."

Ms Scott urged anyone with information to contact police or Crimestoppers.

"We never ask for your name, no call is recorded and we do not trace IP addresses or calls," she said.

"You won't have to speak with police, give a statement or to go to court - we only want to know what you know, not who you are."
