Ten-year mystery of missing mother
Amanda Duncan
Police have no evidence to suggest Miss Duncan was attacked
Nearly 10 years after a young mother from Suffolk vanished, police say they have not given up hope of finding out what has become of her.

Amanda Duncan, who was 26 when she went missing on 2 July, 1993, was last seen in the Portman Road area of Ipswich.

No-one has heard from her since her disappearance.

Police are concerned that Miss Duncan might have come to harm, but they have never found any evidence to suggest what happened to her, and her case remains open.

Heart-shaped tattoo

Police said it was believed the mother-of-two had been working as a prostitute.

The single mother, who lived in Balliol Close in Woodbridge, left two small sons of three and nine months old.

Miss Duncan is white, 5 ft 7 ins tall, with a medium build and fair hair.

She has a distinctive heart-shaped tattoo on her upper arm.

Anyone with information about Miss Duncan's whereabouts is asked to ring Suffolk Police or contact Crimestoppers.
