NORFOLK police are this morning (Tuesday) following a new line of inquiry into the circumstances surrounding the murder of 17 year-old Alisa Dmitrijeva, whose body was discovered on arable land at Anmer, near Sandringham, on New Year’s Day.

They have now switched their searches to Snettisham Beach car park after discovering she is likely to have spent time there in the early hours of 31 August 2011 when she was last seen.

Searches are taking place today with specially trained officers looking for her mobile phone and other objects which may have belonged to her. DCI Jes Fry, who leads the Joint Norfolk and Suffolk Major Investigation Team into Alisa’s death has again repeated his appeal to local communities around activities in the area at that time.

“I would still ask the local communities in Wisbech and King’s Lynn to think back to the August Bank Holiday and following week in September last year, and to get in touch if they have any information about Alisa’s whereabouts during this time.

“We particularly want to hear from members of the Latvian, Lithuanian and Russian communities who may have known Alisa. We have had multi-lingual posters put up in key locations to encourage people to come forward and we are in the process of trying to have an appeal played on radio stations listened to by these communities.

“As well as sightings of Alisa herself, I am particularly keen to try to find her black LG GM360 mobile phone, or to hear of any sightings in the King’s Lynn and Wisbech area of the bottle green P-registration Lexus GS300 that Alisa was last seen in on 31 August 2011.”

Anyone with any information relating to the incident should contact the Norfolk and Suffolk Major Investigation Team at Norfolk Constabulary on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
