A man has been questioned by police about the disappearance of a woman in Cardiff more than 30 years ago.

Susanne Llewellyn-Jones, 34, had been taken to Cardiff Central station by her husband and was heading for London.

The mother-of-two was last seen on 14 April, 1980. She was thought to have had her passport and international driving licence with her.

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

Ms Llewellyn-Jones, originally from Leicester and known as Sue to friends, lived in the Llandaff area of Cardiff. Her maiden name was Grubb and she had been married previously under the name of Stubbs.

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

Her disappearance was said to be completely out of character.

Visiting friends

Her husband had taken her to Cardiff Central railway station to catch a train to London on the day she was last seen.

She said she was planning to visit friends but it is not known if she ever arrived.

South Wales Police said officers were tracing Ms Llewellyn-Jones's friends and acquaintances from 1980 and have told her family about the re-investigation.

Det Ch Insp Ceri Hughes, from the Specialist Crime Investigations Team, said: "All outstanding missing person cases remain open and are revisited periodically in case new evidence comes to light.

"As part of that process we will assess, re-visit and evaluate all information gathered up until now as well as identifying any potential new lines of enquiry."

Anyone with information which may be relevant is asked to contact the incident room at Cardiff Central Police Station on 029 2057 1530 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
