AN area in Welwyn Garden City is cordoned off by police carrying out a murder probe.

Officers investigating the disappearance of Amelia Arnold say ‘significant evidence’ has been found close to Hollybush Lane.

The 19-year-old, from Stevenage, has been missing since Wednesday, and a murder enquiry has been launched.

This morning 22-year-old Jack Wall was arrested in connection with the investigation after presenting himself at a Herts police station.

Detective Chief Inspector Tim Redfearn, who is leading the investigation, said: “We believe evidence in relation to the murder has been left here and we are extremely keen to hear from anyone who lives in the area of Hollybush Lane and saw a white van or anyone depositing of items in the area on Thursday afternoon or evening to make contact with police.”

Herts Police says intelligence-led searches are being carried out in the Stevenage area.

Det Chief Insp Redfearn said: “Amelia’s family are extremely distraught and are desperate for information on her whereabouts.

“Intelligence led searches are taking place in the Stevenage area to find Amelia but we would appeal to anyone who can provide information of her whereabouts to contact police immediately via the non-emergency number 101.”

The police investigation currently centres around their shared home in Hadrian’s Walk, Stevenage.

A 41 year old man was arrested yesterday, Saturday, in connection with the investigation.

He remains in police custody.
