Still missing, three years later

Chaima Slim
GIBRALTAR (GibChronicle/Brian Reyes) Detectives in Gibraltar travelled to Morocco this year to interview relatives of Chaima Slim, the young woman who disappeared without trace three years ago. The Royal Gibraltar Police revealed the development as it made a fresh plea for information coinciding with the third anniversary of the disappearance tomorrow. "This is still very much a live enquiry for the RGP and we continue to carry out enquiries as to the whereabouts or any information about Chaima," a police spokesman said.
"This past year RGP officers visited Morocco and interviewed members of Chaima's family, but unfortunately these have not been proved fruitful." The latest round of enquiries was led by a senior officer who had not been involved in the case before.>>>
  He reviewed all the evidence in the hope of spotting and developing new information.

"The idea is to bring a fresh point of view to the investigation," the police spokesman said.

Miss Slim, who was 19 when she went missing, was last seen walking toward the border on July 10, 2008.

She was wearing a pink dress and was seen earlier that same day walking along Winston Churchill Avenue and Devil's Tower Road. 
She has not been seen or heard of since, and continues to be reported worldwide as a Missing Person via Interpol.

"If any information is received this would be followed up," the police spokesman said. "Unfortunately this last year no new information has been forthcoming."

As in other years, the RGP asked anyone with any information regarding Miss Slim to telephone the Duty Officer at Police Headquarters on Tel No. 20072500.

Alternatively there is also a voicemail service provided daily between 1500hrs to 0800hrs on Tel No. 20042581.

Any information received will be treated in the strictest confidence.
