A WOMAN fighting for police case files into the disappearance of her sister to be released has received a letter from the Prime Minister.

Katrice Lee was two when she went missing 30 years ago from a German military base where her father was stationed.

Her sister Natasha, from Gosport, is fighting for case files held by the Royal Military Police (RMP) because of her family’s fears the initial investigation was mishandled.

The family wrote to David Cameron asking him to order the release of the files, but his responding letter stated he was unprepared to do this as the RMP’s investigation is still ongoing.

Natasha, 37, said: ‘We want to know what makes our case different to other families.

‘Mr Cameron has ordered the release of files for other missing children – why will he do it for them and not for us?

‘We really believe that investigations into Katrice’s disappearance weren’t handled quickly or efficiently enough and it’s a constant battle and struggle for us to try to get justice for her.’
