THE friends of a missing Indonesian woman have marked the first anniversary of her disappearance by placing flowers outside her flat.
Police believe Ermatati Rodgers, 42, of Wrexham, may have been murdered.
She was last seen in the Gwersyllt area of Wrexham, at about 4.30pm on Friday, January 4, 2008.
The alarm was raised a day later when she failed to keep an appointment with friends in Treuddyn – the Rev John Jones, his wife Anne and their daughter Hannah Sabrun.
Hannah, who lives in Leeswood near Mold, said: “It’s been a very difficult year for us all. We have accepted Tati has been murdered and all we want now is closure and to move on.
“We need to lay her to rest so we have somewhere to go to remember her. We need to say goodbye.
“If anyone has any information about her disappearance we urge them to contact the police or pass on what they know anonymously.
“Tati was the nicest person you could ever meet. We desperately need to know what happened to her.
“We all hope the New Year will bring the answers we are looking for.”
An appeal on BBC One’s Crimewatch last month and a £100,000 reward have so far failed to provide police with the information they need to solve the mystery of her disappearance.
Det Insp Mark Hughes said: “Despite a good response to the Crimewatch appeal, we are still keen to speak to anyone who may know details of Ermatati’s whereabouts.”
A 26-year-old man from the Wrexham area has been arrested and bailed in connection with her disappearance.
Anyone with information should contact North Wales Police on 0845 6071001 (Welsh line), 0845 6071002 (English line) or Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555111.
