Cannock pair released on bail as missing Vietnamese student investigation continues
Written by The Newsroom on August 20, 2019
A duo who were arrested in Cannock as part of an investigation surrounding the disappearance of a Vietnamese student have been bailed, police have revealed.
The man and woman were arrested after police, including forensic officers, searched a home in St James Road and InailsUK – a nail bar in Mill Street – last week.
Both raids formed part of a North Yorkshire Police investigation into the disappearance of Linh Thi Dieu Le, a 15-year-old who went missing on Tuesday, August 6, while she was visiting York.
The teenager was found ‘safe and well’ on the evening of Monday, August 12, but police have not yet confirmed where she was found.
At the time, a spokesman for the force said: “For operational reasons and ongoing enquiries we are not yet in a position to reveal where Linh Le was found.”
In total, 10 people were arrested in connection with the youngster’s disappearance but to date, only one has been charged.
Ho Quang Ngoc appeared at York Magistrates’ Court on Monday, August 12, accused of child abduction and facilitating a breach of immigration laws.
The 25-year-old entered a not guilty plea and he will now appear at York Crown Court on Monday, September 16.
The pair from Cannock have since been released on bail, pending further enquiries, police have said.
