The gruesome discovery of a badly decomposed body of a teenage girl was found on the Sandringham estate two years ago this week.

A dog walker had found the partially clothed body of Alisa Dmitrijeva hidden in isolated woodland, known as French’s Covert Belt, in Anmer on New Year’s Day 2011 at 4pm.

But despite an extensive police inquiry, the 17-year-old’s death is still surrounded in mystery.

Alisa was last seen alive in Friar’s Street, Lynn, on 12.15am on August 31, 2011, and attended a beach party in Snettisham during that evening.

The youngster’s jeans, jumper and coat have never been recovered along with her mobile phone, despite an extensive search.

The Norfolk and Suffolk major investigations team launched a fresh appeal for information on the second anniversary of Alisa’s disappearance in August.

The team received several lines of inquiry which are being investigated.

Det Insp Marie James said: “It is now two years since Alisa’s body was discovered. Our investigation into her death remains open and our enquiries continue.

“We are still hopeful that we can take the case forward and, importantly, bring some closure to her family. We issued an appeal in August, on the second anniversary of her disappearance, for the public’s help to trace some of Alisa’s missing clothing and her mobile phone. To date, these remain outstanding.”
