In July 1999, the remains of Wendy Upton were found in nearby woods; she was identified using dental records. Upton had been reported as missing nine months previously. At the time, police launched a major campaign to find the missing 40-year-old even staging reconstruction of her movements on the day she disappeared with the help of the local community. One particularly helpful person was Steven Salisbury, who took part in the reconstruction and appeared in a press conference urging Wendy to get in touch. However, as well as helping the Police, Salisbury was also under suspicion, and when Wendy's body was found, he was quickly arrested and questioned.
