Detectives investigating the murder of Fiona Holm, who went missing from Lewisham in June 2023, are offering a reward of up to £20,000 for information leading to the recovery of her remains.
Fiona was reported missing on 29 June 2023. A murder investigation was launched after it became clear that she had not been seen alive after she left a residential address in Verdant Lane on Tuesday, 20 June 2023.
Despite officers searching areas Fiona was known to frequent; conducting hospital and phone checks and making enquiries with friends and family, Fiona could not be found.
A police reward of up to £20,000 is now being offered for information that leads to the recovery of Fiona Holm’s remains.
A spokesperson for Fiona’s family said: “As a family we are facing our first Christmas since Fiona was murdered, and we are tormented by the fact that her body has not been found.
“Somebody out there has the information police need to bring Fiona home, so we can say our final goodbyes and try and find some peace. We are living in mental torture.
“It is difficult enough for us to come to terms with Fiona’s murder this Christmas, but not knowing where her remains are is an even greater ordeal. We need to be able to lay her to rest. We need to have a funeral.
“We just hope that someone has the decency to put us out of our misery and provide police with the information they need to recover Fiona’s body, and allow her and us to rest.
“Fiona was a kind and loving person who would do anything for anyone. Nothing was too much trouble for her to help a friend. We need someone to show that same kindness to us, and come forward with information.
“Please if anyone knows anything, no matter how small it may seem, get in touch with police.”
A 65-year-old man was charged with Fiona’s murder on Thursday, 13 July. He remains in custody.
Detective Chief Inspector Kate Blackburn said: “Fiona’s family are facing not only their first Christmas without her, but also not knowing where she is.
“I am keen to hear from anyone who saw Fiona since she was last seen in Verdant Lane, SE6 in June this year. We are piecing together a timeline of what may have been her last movements, and your information, no matter how small, could help us establish what happened to her and where she is.
“Have you heard, or do you know anything concerning where her remains could be found? Even if it is just rumour, please share that information with us – you may even be eligible for a cash reward.
“Fiona was a mixed race woman, aged 48 when she was last seen alive. The footage we have released of her in Verdant Lane shows what she was wearing when she was last seen. Do you remember seeing her? Do you know Fiona and know anything about what was happening in her life? If you can help, please do get in touch.”
If you saw Fiona or have information concerning her disappearance you can provided information via our information portal.
