Forensics and police officers have been spotted in relation to an investigation into the murder of a woman missing for more than 10 years.

Two large containers have been placed in Kilburn High Road since yesterday (December 4) with a police presence in the area as police continue to investigate the circumstances of the disappearance of Lisa Pour.

Lisa, who would now be 51, was last seen by her probation officer on January 16, 2013, and was reported missing a week later on January 23.

Detectives believe that her absence since that date and other information obtained means she has likely been killed.

At the time of her disappearance, she was living apart from her family and had been staying at a Kilburn High Road flat that was known to be popular with drug users.

The Metropolitan Police described Lisa as 5ft 2ins tall, of slim build and with dark hair. She was known to spend time in Camden and Brent.

A spokesperson for the Met explained that the containers seen today are related to Operation Ablemast, an investigation into the disappearance of Lisa.

The force explained: “This is ongoing operational activity and we are not in a position to comment further at this time.”

Detective Chief Inspector Neil Rawlinson, who is leading the investigation, said: “Lisa has been missing for more than ten years and we know the heartache and distress this has caused to her devoted parents and three children.”

In November, it was announced that independent charity Crimestoppers is offering a £20,000 reward for information that brings her killer to justice.

DCI Rawlinson added: “The length of time that has passed has not made it easier for Lisa’s family – without finding out what happened they have no closure and without a body, are unable to lay her to rest.

“There may be people out there who in the past have not felt able to speak to us but are now in a position to do so. If that is you, please call independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 or visit their website.”
