    Woman Charged With Impersonating Katrice Lee

    A woman will appear in court charged with impersonating someone who has not been seen since she vanished in 1981, when she was a toddler.

    Katrice Lee disappeared on her second birthday while she was on a shopping trip with her family at a NAAFI store near the British Army base in Paderborn, Germany, where her father Richard was serving.

    Mr Lee, from Hartlepool, said someone had been impersonating his daughter on social media and a woman will appear in court.

    Katrice Lee dad calls for equal funding for all missing people

    Katrice’s dad Richie Lee, 69, who lives in Hartlepool, says there is a ‘distinct disparity’ between the McCann case, which has received a reported £11.75m Home Office funding, and other cases, including his own.

    Mr Lee says he bears the McCanns no ill will and understands their desire to continue the search for Madeleine, who went missing in Praia da Luz, Portugal, in May 2007, when she was three.

    But he says it should be a level playing field for all such cases.

    Mr Lee said: “There is no one case more important than another.

    “It should be a level playing field for all missing person cases and it is not.

    “There is a distinct disparity between Ben Needham (who went missing aged 21 months on the Greek island of Kos) and the high profile case of Madeleine McCann.”

    Mr Lee said a search of a river bank in Germany for signs of Katricee a year ago cost £100,000.

    “That works out at £52.25 over the 37 years that Katrice has been missing which I think in reality is very, very poor,” he said.

    Missing toddler Katrice Lee: Arrest made in Swindon

    An arrest has been made over the 38-year-old mystery of a toddler who went missing in Germany.

    Royal Military Police said an arrest was made in the Swindon area but would not comment any further. A garden has also been searched.

    A spokesman said: "We can confirm that an arrest was made on 23 September by the Royal Military Police in connection with the disappearance of Katrice Lee in 1981."


    Cops arrest suspect over missing Brit toddler Katrice Lee, 2, ‘snatched’ from British Army base in 1981 as dad reveals ’37 years of hell’

    THE dad of missing Brit toddler Katrice Lee has told how his family has "been to hell and back" – as an arrest was made in the 37-year-old case.

    Military police yesterday detained a suspect in Swindon, Wilts, over the disappearance of the two-year-old girl in 1981.

    Innocent Katrice was feared snatched from a barracks shop on her second birthday in Paderborn, Germany where her soldier dad was based.

    An item was also recovered from a back garden after officers dug up the patio at a row of terraced houses in Swindon, witnesses say.

    A neighbour told The Sun: “Forensic teams in white suits started in the middle of the garden and then began taking up the patio slabs.

    “Around 2pm they found a small black package.

    “It looked like some kind of bag. They stopped for an hour and then continued to dig using tools until late into the night.”

    Her dad, Richard Lee, has revealed he is feeling "raw" after the arrest "brought it all back".

    The 69-year-old retired sergeant major, told the Mirror: “We all want answers, we’ve been to hell and back over the past 37 years.

    “This arrest of course brings it all back and makes it feel raw.

    How difficult for her dad! I hope the court procedure is swift, for the family's sake.

    Woman admits impersonating missing toddler online

    A woman has admitted posing as a missing toddler online, causing ‘distress’ to those who knew her.

    Heidi Robinson, 40, pretended to be Katrice Lee, who vanished in Germany on her second birthday.

    Robinson pleaded guilty to a malicious communications offence after impersonating the girl on the internet.

    She appeared at Wirral Magistrates’ Court on Wednesday where she admitted using a public communications network to send a message that was grossly offensive, indecent or menacing on November 3 last year.

    The case was adjourned until October 30 for a pre-sentence report to be prepared, which District Judge Nicholas Sanders said should include information on the defendant’s mental health.

    The judge said: ‘Clearly at the time you were not very well but, on the other hand, what you have now admitted to also caused some very real distress to people in this matter.’
