Parents of missing Cambs teen appear in court charged with her murder

The parents of missing Peterborough teenager Bernadette Walker have appeared in court charged with her murder.

Sarah and Scott Walker were charged with the murder of 17-year-old Bernadette after they reported their daughter as missing in July.

Police have not yet located Bernadette and a ‘no-body’ murder investigation was launched on Friday (September 11).

Sarah, 37, and Scott, 50, both of Century Square in Millfield, Peterborough, appeared in virtual court yesterday.

They were remanded in custody to appear at Peterborough Crown Court tomorrow (September 16).

Police have appealed for anyone with information on the case to come forward, as they continue to search for Bernadette.

Detective Superintendent Jon Hutchinson said: “Whilst my team have made significant progress with this investigation in the last few days, we are yet to find Bernadette therefore my plea is for anyone who has information on what has happened to her, or where she might be, to get in touch as a matter of urgency.”

Anyone with information should contact police either by using the online webchat function, or by calling 101 and quoting Operation Penshaw.
