Police Continue to Search for Missing 34-year-old
West Midlands Police are searching allotments across Leicester as part of the on-going investigation of missing Costco worker, Sameena Imam.
Forensic teams are now focusing on a piece of land close to the city centre which follows searches at a house in Hughenden Drive in Leicester, three miles from the allotments.
Despite extensive searches by specialist police officers Sameena – aged 34 and who was living in Cardiff at the time she disappeared – has not been seen since 24 December, at her work address of Costco, Torrington Avenue, where she was a marketing manager.
She was due to return to her family’s home in North London for Christmas.
Her car – a black BMW one series – was located by officers in Overstone Road, Luton, on 4 January.
Two brothers, Roger Cooper, aged 40, of Tile Hurst Drive, Coventry and David Cooper, aged 38, of Hughenden Drive, Leicester, have been charged with her murder.
Detective Superintendent Mark Payne is leading the investigation into Sameena’s disappearance. He said: “This is a significant development in our inquiry and our thoughts are with Sameena’s family and friends at this time.
“Our investigation is still very much ongoing and I would like to thank all those who have called with information so far to help find Sameena.
“We remain keen to speak to anyone who believes they may have information about Sameena’s disappearance and I would urge them to call us on 101 or the anonymous charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.”
