Natalie Putt: Land Search For Missing Teen Ends
Police have called off a search of land in south Staffordshire over the disappearance of teenager Natalie Putt 10 years ago.
Specialist teams scoured private land off the Stourbridge Road in Wombourne after getting new information.
But West Midlands Police said nothing significant had been found in the operation.
Natalie disappeared from her home in Thornleigh, Lower Gornal, in September 2003.
The young mother, who was aged 17 at the time of her disappearance, had given birth to a baby boy 11 weeks before.
Natalie's child, Rhys, continues to be cared for by relatives.
Superintendent Andy Parsons, from Dudley Police, said: "The missing persons investigation into Natalie's disappearance will always remain open and any new lines of inquiry will be investigated."
