A search of the former home of a woman who has been missing for 33 years has been brought to an end.

Police had been searching the property in Llandaff in Cardiff after reopening the "cold case" of Susanne Llewellyn-Jones, 34.

She went missing in 1980 after being taken to Cardiff railway station by her husband. She was heading for London.

A man, 68, from the Vale of Glamorgan has been interviewed after voluntarily attending a police station.

South Wales Police began an investigation at her former home on Friday but said that no further searches were planned.

Police have also searched included Churchills Hotel on Cardiff Road, which was owned by Ms Llewellyn-Jones and her husband.

Out of character

Det Ch Insp Ceri Hughes, from the Specialist Crime Investigations Team, said: "These routine inquiries are essential in any long-term missing person case and particularly to our investigation in determining what happened to Susanne.

"We thank the local community for their co-operation during the recent searches."

Police recently began a fresh inquiry into the disappearance of the mother of two who was said to be planning to visit friends at the time she went missing on 14 April 1980.

It is not known if she ever arrived.

She was thought to have had her passport and international driving licence with her.

Originally from Leicester and known as Sue to friends, Ms Llewellyn-Jones lived in the Llandaff area of Cardiff.

She was described as being of slim build with blonde shoulder-length hair, brown eyes and a fair complexion.

Ms Llewellyn-Jones's disappearance was said to be completely out of character.

Her maiden name was Grubb and she had been married previously under the name of Stubbs.

South Wales Police said anyone with information can contact the incident room at Cardiff Central Police Station on 02920 571530 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
