Renewed appeals have been made to trace the suspected killer of a Clacton woman who disappeared ten years ago.

Sandra Grant was last seen by her family on Friday, November 14, 2003. They are said to have been living a “painful life” over the past decade and are desperate for answers.

Sandra was known to have visited a soup kitchen in Clacton on the Saturday where she met two friends with whom she went for a drink at a nearby flat with another man.

Sandra is believed to have left the flat during the evening, though it is not known what happened to her after.

Essex Police’s investigating officer Dc Sue Jenkins said: “We have never stopped looking at this case.

“We have continued to work through the material which has come into the incident room from members of the public, but at this time there is obviously a key piece of information which is missing and is why we are making another appeal for people living the community to come forward.

“Someone working and residing in the seaside resort knows what happened to Sandra and we, and Sandra’s children, need them to contact us.

Sandra was a 48-year-old divorced mother of four adult children at the time of her disappearance.

She lived alone at a flat on Wellesley Road in Clacton and was once well known around town where she would meet fellow drinkers in the town centre’s shopping area.

She had regular contact with her family and was due to meet one of her daughters several days after her disappearance, but never showed up.
