The PSNI are using new technology to try to find the body of missing County Down woman Lisa Dorrian who vanished in 2005.

Today Lisa's family returned to the scene where she was last seen alive in 2005. 

The 25 year-old is thought to have been murdered after a party at Ballyhalbert Caravan park in Co.Down. 

Yesterday, detectives announced new searches in a bid to find her remains - and are today focusing on a disused airfield nearby. 

This morning the PSNI and the Dorrian family updated journalists on the search operation.

Detective Superintendent Jason Murphy says new information and a development in technology brought about the fresh lead.

DSI Murphy wouldn’t be drawn on exactly what the new information was but says searches are expected to continue for several days.
