A murder investigation has been launched into the disappearance of a Fulwood woman.


Greater Manchester Police searched a property in Bolton on Monday morning in connection with missing woman Victoria Cherry.

Update: Body found in search for Victoria Cherry

The 44-year-old has not been seen since October 2015 and a 43-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of murder.

Victoria’s body has not been found and police say they are treating the inquiry as a ‘non-body murder’.

Detective Chief Inspector Terry Crompton, of GMP’s Serious Crime Division, said: “My thoughts are with Victoria’s family, who are being offered the support of specialist officers at this incredibly difficult time.

“Clearly, the focus of our investigation has now changed and we remain keen to speak to anyone who may have any information about what has happened to Victoria.

“I am urging anyone who has any knowledge of Victoria’s movements since her disappearance, or any information, no matter how insignificant you feel it may be, to please get in touch.”

Anyone with information is asked to contact police on 0161 856 4711, or the independent charity Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
