New appeal over lay-by body
Posters are going up in Wembley and Sidcup
Police investigating the murder of a woman thought to have been abducted from her north London home are putting up posters one week after her death.

The body of restaurant owner Yuk Ying Phuah was found on a grass verge by the A20 in Sidcup, Kent, at 1125 BST on Saturday.

The mother-of-two, who had been suffocated, was found partially clothed and covered by an unzipped sleeping bag.

Police were called at midnight by her family who returned home to find the house in Meadow Way, Wembley, in disarray.

Officers think Mrs Phuah was abducted from her home the day before her body was found.

They are investigating whether it was a kidnap attempt that went wrong.

Detective Chief Inspector Colin Dell said: "The key things that I need to ascertain at this stage are the movements of Mrs Phuah on Friday afternoon or anyone who saw anything or anyone acting suspiciously around her home."

Police want anyone who was in the Meadow Way area on Friday or saw anything suspicious to contact them.
