Police investigating the murder of Auckland teenager Jane Furlong want a mystery woman who contacted them in 1994 to pick up the phone again.
Furlong was last seen in 1993 and her remains were found on a Port Waikato beach earlier this year.
Police are calling for a person who contacted them in 1994 with ''pertinent'' information to ring them again.
Detective Inspector Mark Benefield, the officer in charge of the investigation into Furlong's death, posted on Facebook yesterday saying: "In March 1994 a doco screened about Jane Furlong called 'Under Investigation'. Following that an anonymous call was received with information which we are very interested in.
"Someone rang in and supplied some information. But without leaving a name and a number it's difficult for us to talk to them again obviously."
"We believe that information is pertinent to the investigation and would like to speak to that person again. We believe it was a female."
Furlong, a part-time sex worker, was last seen by her boyfriend after he had dropped her off to work on Auckland's Karangahape Rd on May 28, 1993.
The 17-year-old's remains were found buried at Port Waikato this year. Police have said they believe more than one person was involved in her death.
Anyone with information is asked to ring police on 0800675263 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800555111.
