AN MP has asked the prime minister to meet the family of missing Katrice Lee.

Hartlepool MP Iain Wright has written to David Cameron asking him to meet the girl’s father Richie Lee, 61, to discuss her case.

A Royal Military Police re-investigation into the girl’s disappearance on November 28 in 1981 is being carried out.

Katrice was two when she vanished from a Naafi in Paderborn, West Germany.

Her mother Sharon and sister Natasha live in Gosport.

Mr Wright said: ‘I have written to the prime minister saying that it is Katrice’s 35th birthday and the 33rd anniversary of her disappearance.

‘I have asked him, what are you doing to make sure that all of government is geared to helping this family.

‘Mr Lee served this country in the Armed Forces for 34 years – not that that should make a difference – but he and the family need help with this.

‘Mr Lee wants to meet with the prime minister so he can explain the case to him and hopefully get some more 

He added: ‘I asked parliamentary questions about how the ongoing investigation is progressing and can I be given anymore information on that.

‘I also asked if the Ministry of Defence and the Royal Military Police can hand over the files to the family in relation to this case.

‘Although it’s an ongoing investigation, I still think the family are in the best position to see if there are any gaps.’

Richie said he was grateful for Mr Wright’s input and said: ‘I’m trying to get answers and I will continue to do so.’
