ALMOST a year to the day that Hampshire teenager Hannah Foster was murdered, her parents have spoken of their anguish that the killer remains on the run.

The 17-year-old was abducted a year ago this Sunday as she made the short walk back to her home in Grosvenor Road, Portswood, after a night out with four friends.

Two days later, Hannah's body was found in a hedgerow in Allington Lane, West End, four miles from her home. She had been raped and strangled.

The discovery sparked one of the largest murder inquiries ever undertaken by Hampshire police, with more than 100 dedicated detectives at the height of the inquiry.

Hannah was in her final year of A-levels at Barton Peveril College in Eastleigh.

Today, her parents Trevor and Hilary Foster released two new photographs of their daughter.

The couple revealed their despair that their daughter's killer has not been caught.

In a statement, the couple said: "This continues to be the worst time in our lives. We miss Hannah terribly.

"The injustice of her death is intensified by the knowledge that her killer is still at large. We remain optimistic that the combined efforts of the Hampshire and Punjab police forces to secure an arrest will prove successful."

Police continue their hunt for prime suspect, Maninder Pal Singh Kohli, the 36-year-old delivery driver from Swaythling, who is believed to have fled to India days after Hannah's body was found.
