POLICE investigating the disappearance of York chef Claudia Lawrence will tonight make a fresh TV appeal for information.

North Yorkshire Police say there will be a brief appeal on Crimewatch, which begins at 9pm.

Claudia was 35 when she went missing in March 2009, after failing to turn up for work at the University of York.

Sunday marked the third anniversary of her disappearance, which is treated as suspected murder. Despite a huge police operation, no arrests have ever been made.
