Relatives offer £10,000 to trace mother-of-three who vanished a decade ago

The family of a mother-of-three who disappeared a decade ago is offering a £10,000 reward for information that leads to finding out what happened to her.

The family of a mother-of-three who disappeared a decade ago is offering a £10,000 reward for information that leads to finding out what happened to her.

Lisa Pour, who would be 50 now, vanished after she was last seen by a probation officer in the Willesden Green area of north-west London on the afternoon of January 16 2013.

Ms Pour, who grew up in Queens Park, is said to have appeared well on that last known sighting and had never gone missing before.

The Metropolitan Police said it “cannot rule out that Lisa may have come to some harm, but this is just one of a number of possibilities” which it continues to investigate.

Her family is offering a £10,000 reward for anyone who comes forward with significant information that leads to police finding out what happened to her.

In a joint statement, her children Lauren-Holly, 25, and Jack Saffery, 23, said: “These past 10 years without our mother have really affected our family.

“She is a light that is missing in our lives and there’s not one day we don’t think about her.

“It would mean the world to us if one day we’ll be able to see our mother again.

“Every day that goes by we miss her and it is upsetting that we may not be able to see her again.

“Please help find our mother.”

Ms Pour’s mother Linda Pour, 76, added: “For 10 years I have not believed my daughter has died.

“I always believe I’ll see her one day, and I’ll put my arms around her and give her a kiss.

“She was the most wonderful loving child.

“I miss her every day.”

Ms Pour is described as 5ft 2in, of slim build and with dark hair at the time of her disappearance and she was known to visit the London boroughs of Brent and Camden.

Lauren-Holly added: “She was a loving character, she was very quiet and shy but she always had so much love for her parents, for her children.

“She looked well before she went missing so that gives us hope in the sense that she could be possibly alive somewhere.

“And we just want to know, whatever the outcome or whatever the situation is or however she turned out, we just need that peace of mind because my grandparents, they’re getting to an age now where they just need that for themselves and for my brother and my sister and I.

“It’s horrible not knowing what’s happened to someone you love so much.

“It’s the not knowing, it’s the not having an end or having closure.”

Detective Chief Inspector Adam Rowland, who is leading the investigation, said: “Lisa’s lifestyle was turbulent and she was dealing with drug addiction at the time she disappeared, but she is a daughter and a mother who is sorely missed by her family and they understandably want to know the circumstances around her sudden disappearance.

“Our extensive enquiries over the last 10 years have so far not brought us any closer to finding out where Lisa is or what happened to cause her disappearance – and her long-suffering parents, children and relatives continue to live in hope that she will make contact with them one day.

“This is still very much an active inquiry, but we need information from people who knew and saw Lisa close to the time of her disappearance.

“If you have any information that could help the investigation, tell police what you know.

“It could bring us a step closer to tracing her.

“And Lisa, if you see this, please get in touch with us or a partner agency so your loving family know you are OK.”

Anyone with any information is asked to call police on 101 quoting Op Faline. Alternatively, call the independent charity Missing People on 116000.
