Details of Incident

Police have renewed their Appeal for information to assist in finding Yvette Watson who was 17 years old when she went missing from the David Rice Hospital, Drayton High Road, Hellesdon on the 30th March 1979.

At the time she went missing Yvette was 5'6" tall, slight build with short dark brown hair, brown eyes and a fair complexion. She may have been wearing a brown cord skirt and a short jacket. She had £3.50 with her. She may have been seen on the 2nd April 1979 in Bull Close Road, Norwich. Police attempts to locate Yvette have so far been unsuccessful.

Andy Guy, the Major Crime Review and Cold Case Manager within the joint Norfolk and Suffolk Major Investigation Team, said despite the case remaining unsolved for 40 years, police would always act on new, credible information.

He said: “There have been a number of theories over the years concerning the circumstances of Yvette’s disappearance, however sadly, she has never been found.

“We will always review any information given to police and take necessary action if it is thought to be credible, regardless of how much time has passed. I would encourage anyone with information concerning Yvette’s disappearance to come forward.”
