Police have released a video clip of a re-enactment of the last night murdered Auckland teen Jane Furlong was seen on Karangahape Rd.

Police this week identified a skeleton found on Sunset Beach at Port Waikato, south of Auckland, last month as that of Jane.

Furlong, 17, a part-time sex worker, went missing in 1993. Her remains were found by a woman walking her dog.

When she disappeared, Furlong was due to testify as a witness for the prosecution in two separate cases - one involved gang members accused of an assault, the other a businessman charged with brutal attacks on sex workers.

The clip was part of a 1993 Crime Watch programme and featured an actor as Jane while her boyfriend, Danny Norsworthy, played himself.

Officer in charge of the homicide investigation, Detective Inspector Mark Benefield, said he hoped the footage might jog the memories of someone and spur them to contact police with information.

Anyone with information should contact the Op Darlia investigation team on 0800 675 263, visit the "What happened to Jane" Facebook page, email furlong@police.govt.nz or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
