Last year, Katrice's father told Sky News of his "embitterment" over past failures in the investigation into the two-year-old girl's disappearance.

The initial investigation, led by the British military police because NAAFI was essentially British property, was botched from the start, a fact that has now been acknowledged by investigators.

A section of a river bank was excavated in 2018 as part of renewed investigations, though nothing was found.

Investigators did not reveal the specifics of why they were drawn to the small stretch of the River Alme just outside Paderborn, but released an e-fit of a man they wanted to trace.

He was seen putting a child into a green saloon car at the NAAFI on the day Katrice went missing. The same car was seen by a witness parked by a bridge next to the stretch of river they had searched.

When she returned in what she has estimated was less than a minute, Katrice was gone.

Both Wendy and Sharon had thought Katrice was with the other.

There was an extensive search but it was assumed that Katrice had wandered to the nearby river and drowned. An abduction was not considered likely.
