Detectives in Wiltshire have begun a murder investigation following the disappearance of a woman nearly 20 years ago. Sally Ann John was 23 when she went missing from her home town of Swindon. Today police said that following a review of evidence they were now treating the case as murder.
When she vanished back in 1995 her family were distraught. They knew that Sally had been working as a prostitute. They feared the worst.
At the time Sally's mother, Lesley John, told ITV News: "What are my worries now? That she has been harmed somewhere. Do you think she might have been taken by a client? I think so."
Today, back in the street in Swindon where she was last seen alive, the police said they want help from the public. Detective Inspector Tim Corner said: "We are confident that people who think they have information will come forward."
Detectives say they are not linking the case to Christopher Halliwell, who is serving a life sentence for murdering nightclubber Sian O'Callaghan in 2002. Last week the house where he used to live was searched by forty specialist officers. "We keep an open mind to every investigation we undertake, murder or otherwise. We are not connecting the two at the moment."
