Police searching for the body of a teenager who went missing in Country Armagh 23 years ago have narrowed their search to a row of buildings.

Caroline Graham was living in Portadown when she disappeared in April 1989.

Police are now "focussing attention on properties within 30-40 yards of premises in Carleton Street, which are currently being used as a taxi office".

They added they do not believe the current occupants of the buildings have any knowledge of the events of 1989.

Last week, officers said they believed that Caroline's remains may be buried under a concrete floor.

In a statement on Sunday, the PSNI repeated their appeal for any builders who were working in Carleton Street in April 1989 to contact them.

Ms Graham was 19 and living with her boyfriend in Hanover Street, Portadown, at the time of her disappearance.

She was originally from Newry.

PSNI detectives investigating her disappearance launched a murder inquiry in August, saying they had a number of new lines of inquiry.

Anyone with information about the ongoing search can contact police on 0845 600 8000 or call the investigation team directly on 07585 228283.

Information can also be passed anonymously to the Crimestoppers charity on 0800 555 111.
