Hertfordshire Police are renewing their call for help into the murder of a woman whose body has not been found.

Joy Morgan, who was studying midwifery at the University of Hertfordshire, was last seen in Ilford on Boxing Day 2018.

The 21-year-old was reported as missing from Hatfield six weeks later on 7th February, but police are yet to find her body.

She had links to Hatfield, Ilford, Battersea, Cricklewood, Stevenage and Luton and her family say they have been left devastated and in utter turmoil at her death.

Shohfar-El Israel, who's 40 and from London has been charged with her murder. He is next due before St Albans Crown Court on May 31st for a pre-trial hearing.

Detective Inspector Justine Jenkins, from the Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire and Hertfordshire Major Crime Unit, said: "Unfortunately, Joy's body has not been found yet so I'm continuing to urge members of the public to be  vigilant when  out and about and if you see anything suspicious please alert the police immediately.

"If you have any information at all about Joy, no matter how insignificant it might seem, please do not hesitate to get in touch. This is a devastating time for Joy's family and they are in utter turmoil."

Officers are also still keen to hear from anyone who has information about the Honda vehicle (pictured below) which belongs to Mr Israel.

DI Jenkins, from the Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire and Hertfordshire Major Crime Unit, continued: "The vehicle has been located but I am keen to hear from anyone who might have seen it over the festive period and into the New Year. Joy used to travel in the vehicle and any information you have about it, no matter how small it might seem, could be vital to the investigation.

"If you saw it, please do not hesitate to get in touch and let us know when and where it was."
