Suzy Lamplugh’s Family: Where Are They Now?
Tragically, Suzy’s parents Diana and Paul never saw their daughter again after she disappeared in 1986.
In The Vanishing of Suzy Lamplugh, which aired on C5 in 2020, Suzy’s brother Richard recalls his parents walking the streets in search of their daughter.
They relentlessly shouted her name, hoping someone would hear them.
Unfortunately, both Diana and Paul died without finding out what had happened to their daughter.
Suzy’s mother Diana died in 2011 after a stroke – possibly as a result of her daughter’s disappearance.
The personal security officer was 75 years old at the time of her death.
Ms. Lamplugh advocated issues ranging from increasing the safety of minicabs to protecting victims of stalking.
Therefore, she received an OBE in 1992 after founding the Suzy Lamplugh Trust.
In 2018, Suzy’s father Paul died in his sleep surrounded by his three remaining children Richard, Tamsin, and Lizzie.
Suzy Lamplugh’s family: what does her brother Richard say?
Suzy was one of four siblings.
She had a brother named Richard and two sisters named Tamsin and Lizzie.
Suzy’s brother Richard is on TV a lot, asking for information about his sister’s whereabouts.
During an interview for On the Trail of the Killer, he reveals the distress that his younger sister Suzy has no grave.
About her disappearance, he says: “You don’t want to believe that something really bad has happened to her.
“But your hope is dying and you are trying to stay positive.
“It’s out there somewhere, but we don’t remember her anywhere.
“We don’t have a grave or anything like that.
“It would be great to have a place to bury her.”
Richard was 26 and was working on a fish farm in Hertfordshire when his sister disappeared.
Richard, now 61, lives in Aberdeen with his wife Christine and their daughters.
