Tia lived with her parents but made regular visits to her grandmother and her boyfriend’s, Stuart Hazell-37, home. On the August 3rd August Tia was reported as missing.
Neighbor Paul Meehan, who is married with two children, had claimed to have seen Tia walking down the street on the day of her disappearance; completely throwing the police off track.
On the last search of the grandmother’s home on Friday, police sniffer dogs were brought into the property and subsequently found a body. Mr. Hazell has been charged with murder.
