Coventry City Football Club are supporting a new campaign to find Nicola Payne.

The 18-year-old Coventry mum, and Sky Blues supporter, disappeared on Saturday 14th December 1991.

Nicola left her boyfriend's home in Winston Avenue, Henley Green around midday and walked across the Black Pad to return to mum Marilyn and dad John's home in Woodway Park.

She never arrived and for the last 26 years police have been working to try and solve the mystery of what happened to her.

A new website has been launched in a quest to find information and raise awareness, and fans can visit it now at

Appeals for information will also be made at Coventry City’s home game against Cheltenham on the scoreboard, tannoy and matchday programme, and Nicola’s family, including parents John and Marilyn, will be VIP guests of the club at the match.

The family wish to thank everyone for the overwhelming support in their search for answers over the decades that have passed.

They need you again to share Nicola’s story, keep her photo in the public domain, jogging memories and pricking consciences because somebody out there knows where she is.

So share everything you see on social media to keep this search current and more importantly to make it successful.

You can watch and share a new video about Nicola here:

If you have ANY information, please call

West Midlands Police - 0121 626 5000

Crimestoppers - 0800 555 111
