THE family of a woman who went missing in Spain have made a heartfelt appeal for information five years on from her disappearance.
A major police investigation was launched to trace mum-of-one Lisa Brown, 32, exactly five years ago today.
Painstaking searches, regular media appeals and a £100,000 reward have so far failed to yield clues as to how Scottish born Lisa vanished from her home in Guadiaro near San Roque in 2015.
Prime suspect at the time Simon Corner who fled Spain in 2016 and was later held on a European Arrest Warrant at Heathrow Airport after getting off a flight from South America, was eventually released.
Five others held on suspicion of obstructing justice have also had bail conditions lifted.
Her shattered sister Helen Jordan, who fears her sibling is dead, has spoken of the family’s agony on the anniversary of her Lisa’s disappearance.
Posting a poignant message on Facebook today, she said: “We have lived in a permanent state of shock since then. Everyday we grieve for you.
“Our lives have been taken over in finding you and getting you justice and can honestly say today is as bad as the first day.”
Helen wrote about the pain of watching her nephew grow up without his mum and the unanswered questions that haunt the family.
She wrote: “So much has happened and we have learned so much, but no one should have to go through this, especially when there are people out there that know what happened to you, but they keep silent.
“How would they feel if this was their family. Everyday we wait for the call that could tell us where you are.
“When we hear someone has been found we think I hope it’s her, can you imagine having to think that.
“You were the kindest person who saw the good in everyone, the many messages we have received proves that but sadly you made one bad choice.
“His friends were not your friends, and I wish you could of seen that.
“Their hearts don’t break everyday, they didn’t look for you, their son hasn’t grown up without a mum, their mum didn’t die because she was so broken hearted that she gave up living, they only covered up what was done to you
