Disappearance of Claire Holland from Bristol

Appeal for information about the disappearance of Claire Holland, last seen on 6th June 2012

Details of Incident

Claire, who was 32 at the time, was last seen leaving the Seamus O’Donnell’s pub in St Nicholas Street, Bristol, on the evening of Wednesday 6 June, 2012. We suspect Claire was the victim of a crime and are treating her disappearance as suspicious.

Our key appeal points are below – can you help with any of the following?

- Were you in the Seamus O’Donnell’s pub on the night Claire was last seen – Wednesday 6 June, 2012? If you were and haven’t yet spoken to us, please do so now.

- Did you see a woman matching Claire’s description heading into Bristol city centre from the direction of St Nicholas Street after 11pm. You may have seen her elsewhere in Bristol on the same evening - if so, we want to speak to you. Claire is described as white, 5ft tall, of slim build, with shoulder-length brown hair, which was sometimes tied back in a ponytail.

Were you a friend or acquaintance of Claire? If you didn’t speak to police at the time she went missing, or since, now is the time.

- Has someone told you information about this case which may have sounded unusual or suspicious? Has anyone confided in you about what may have happened to Claire?
