‘A few months later her body was found in Danby, North Yorkshire. Vicky did not have access to a car and wasn’t known to frequent or have any association to Danby.
‘Therefore, the enquiries being undertaken are crucial and we ask the residents to help if they can.
‘We will be in Danby for a few days continuing our enquiries and will be based in the Village Hall so if you have new information or knew Vicky and have not spoken to the police before, please come forward.’

A statement from her family said: ‘We feel the loss of Vicky every day, she deserves justice and hope that this reinvestigation puts those responsible behind bars.
‘She did not deserve to have her life taken, no one had the right to do that.
‘Vicky was loved deeply by us, and as a family we have been through turmoil especially as mam Deborah passed away without any answers, knowing Vicky’s killer is out there and people have information that they are not coming forward with.
‘Please do the right thing and help get justice for Vicky and give our family some hope of healing.
‘We plead with you to do the right thing by contacting the police or Crimestoppers.’
Four people have been arrested in connection with Vicky’s murder since 2000, but all have been released with no further action.
