    Best of everything in your search.

    its unusual circumstances to go missing at anytime of the year, yet so poigniant at xmas time, our hearts go out to the family and partner, in this difficult time,

    hopefully the people of bristol will come together as a community and keep up a vigilance to seek jo,s where abouts.

    although many people go missing each year, alot are found in good time, before anything out of the ordinary occur,s

    we work with homeless males in the midlands and we empathise with what the family are going through

    we wish you all the encouragement and support in the world, dont let the media stop assisiting in this search, the power it has can be a great comfort.

    andi horbury and team at the direct link team in warwick.

    I am so sorry to hear about what is going on. My deepest sympathies and thoughts are with the whole family.

    Chris – I know we’ve not been in touch in a while and I’m sorry for that. My mobile number hasn’t changed and is included in my email address for this post.

    It’s come as a great shock as I’ve lived in Bristol for over 8 years now. Even more of a shock is that I was actually walking up Park Street at around 8pm that evening to Goldbrick House from Baldwin Street. Unfortunately I didn’t notice anything unusual or suspicious. However if you think there’s anything I can help with (local knowledge, a place to stay, anything) please don’t hesitate to contact me.

    As soon as I’m back in the country (26th/27th) I’ll help handing out flyers and I’ll ask all my friends to do the same.

    I can’t imagine what her family and boyfriend are going through right now. My thoughts and prayers are with them that she returns home safe and well soon.

    I’m sure someone had thought of this but has anyone checked to see if the cooker works? If it doesn’t it could explain her leaving the house, pizza in hand seemingly soon after she’d got hone? She may have gone to a friend or neighbours to ask to use theirs.

    We’re all deeply shaken by the loss of Jo. I only met her once, at Chris’s moving in party (when he moved in next door), but she seemed a vibrant person, so full of life. Our hearts go out to all Jo’s family and all of you who knew her and if there’s anything you need please feel free to knock next door. We’ll always be available.

    Following this terrible story from America with the Guardian as my home page, my heart broke in two, who cannot help but to suffer deeply the agonizing pain for this beautiful girl’s family. I just need to reach out and say how deeply affected I am and I wish I could do something to ease the pain, but I cannot. I am certain there are people all over the world, like myself who never knew her who will be affected and very very sad. God bless, reaching out, prayers and love, from an America.

    My deepest sympathy goes to the family. May she rest in peace. I hope that this may in time bring comfort to the family. She will always be with you.

    Do not stand at my grave and weep;
    I am not there, I do not sleep
    I am a thousand winds that blow.
    I am the diamond glints on snow.
    I am the sunlight on ripened grain.
    I am the gentle autumn rain.
    When you awaken in the morning’s hush
    I am the swift uplifting rush
    Of quiet birds in circled flight.
    I am the soft stars that shine at night.
    Do not stand at my grave and cry
    I am not there. I did not die.

    Such a desperately crule and sad thing to happen. As a father myself I can only imagine the pain you must all have been going through during the past days and nights. I hope you’ll find the strength to support one another during the times ahead. Been thinking of you every day.

    I’m so incredibly sorry to hear about the loss of someone who is so clearly loved. My thoughts are with Jo’s family and friends.

    I’m not sure if it makes a difference but the site’s key information states Jo’s body was found at Longmead Lane whereas the BBC site states Longwood Lane (which is in Somerset boundaries). I thought this discrepancy should be pointed out as it may help people remember something of importance.
    Additionally, and without meaning to be speculative, the former location had much more access to a number of train stations.

    I wish the police a speedy investigation to bring justice to Jo.

    • Thanks, this site was incorrect.

      Apologies and now fixed.

    This an awful tragedy my thoughts and prayers got out to Jo’s family, boyfriend and friends.

    Iam from Northern Ireland and listen regularly to the news to see if the killer/s have been caught. I hope this happens soon and justice for Jo is got.
