March 18, 2009. York, England. 35-year old Claudia Lawrence speaks on the phone with her parents and texts her best friend about meeting for drinks the following evening. When Claudia fails to show up for work the next morning and misses her meet-up with her friend, she is subsequently reported missing. The investigation would uncover allegations that Claudia was involved in some secret relationships which may have led to her disappearance, causing the story to become sensationalized by the media. Over the next decade, a number of different men are arrested on suspicion of Claudia’s murder, but due to a lack of evidence, none of them are formally charged. Was Claudia victimized by someone from her personal life, or could a stranger have been responsible for her disappearance? On this week’s episode of “The Trail Went Cold”, we travel to the United Kingdom to explore one of their most prominent unsolved missing persons cases of recent memory.
