Cleveland Police have today announced they have released two people who they’d arrested on suspicion of the murder of Steven Clark without charge.
In September 2020, the Cleveland and North Yorkshire Cold Case Team launched a murder investigation into the disappearance of Steven Clark, who went missing from Marske in December 1992.
Police say that the investigation still remains ongoing but now needs the support of the public who may be able to assist within the case.
“Officers from the joint Cleveland and North Yorkshire Police Cold Case Unit have followed a significant number of lines of enquiry since the launch of the murder investigation in 2020, which followed a review of the original case. We are continuing to investigate Steven’s disappearance and people can continue to contact us with information. There is no proof of life and we believe Steven has come to serious harm, and the case continues to be classified as one of suspected murder.”Detective Chief Inspector Shaun Page Of Cleveland Police
