A RESEARCHER has appealed for people to help solve a tragic murder mystery.
Pauline-Anne Badger wants old photos of Saddleworth Moor and the A635 road, in the hope they may help find the remains of Moors Murder victim Keith Bennett.
Ms Badger is a researcher and post-graduate student of environmental science at the Open University. She wants photos taken of the area from as far back as 1957.
She would specifically like photos that may have been taken during the grouse-shooting season, which runs from August 12 to December 10.
She said: "Old maps can have different positionings to new ones and can shed light on how things have changed on the moors.
"There must be plenty of people who would have been around on the moors in the late 50s and early 60s and would have taken photos."
Studies of the photos may yield clues to where land has been disturbed.
Keith Bennett was murdered by Ian Brady and Myra Hindley, along with other youngsters, but his body has never been found.
The evil pair buried him on bleak Saddleworth Moor, high above Holmfirth, but various attempts to find his body have failed.
Ms Badger said she hoped her work could help bring an end to the long search.
She said: "I would like to see if there is anything in these photos that will either corroborate or dismiss my theories. If we can in any way help the police then that would be great."
