Further searches begin for missing student Joy Morgan

More searches are underway for a missing university student last seen on Boxing Day.

Joy Morgan, a 20-year-old midwifery student at the University of Hertfordshire, was last seen in Ilford on December 26 2018 and her body has yet to be found.

Shohfah-El Israel, 40, of Fordwych Road, London, was charged with her murder on Wednesday February 27.

After Miss Morgan was reported missing from Hatfield on Thursday February 7, numerous searches were carried out in the Stevenage area of Hertfordshire.

Now specialist officers will be conducting further searches across Stevenage for the next seven days, Hertfordshire Police said.

Detective Inspector Justine Jenkins, from the Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire and Hertfordshire Major Crime Unit, said: “We’ve been carrying out extensive enquiries since Joy was reported missing and, following further analytical work, we are returning to search in the Stevenage area.

“If you believe you have information about what happened to Joy, and you are yet to speak to police, please do come forward.

“Although you might think the information is insignificant, it could end up being the missing part of the jigsaw that helps us to find out exactly what happened to Joy.

“We’re still keen to hear from anyone who has information about the pictured Honda vehicle which belongs to Israel.

“Joy used to travel in the vehicle so it is important that anyone who might have seen it over the festive period and into the New Year, gets in touch with us.”

Police said Ms Morgan had links to Hatfield, Stevenage, Battersea, Cricklewood, Ilford and Luton.
