The family of missing woman Jessica Boyce want people to share her photo on social media to help shame her killer into coming forward.

Jessica’s cousin Aaron Goodwin has posted a new profile pic of the smiling Renwick woman, who disappeared on March 19.

He urged people to share the photo in the hope it would prick someone’s conscience.

In the post he says how he hopes the post would propel people to come forward.

“Beautiful Jess. Keeping her as my profile photo in solidarity with investigators and everyone else trying to get justice for Jess.

“Hopefully seeing Jess everywhere might break the conscience of whoever is involved and propel them to come forward.

“Anything’s worth a shot, eh? If anyone else wants to do this, even just for 48hrs it would be really cool to her smiling face everywhere,” he wrote.

Possible forensic evidence relating to the homicide investigation has been seized by police from a Blenheim home.

Police working on the disappearance of Renwick woman Jessica Boyce, 27, searched a house on Warwick Street and another on Henderson Street last week.

Detective Senior Sergeant Ciaran Sloan says the occupant of the Warwick Street address was spoken to by police on Thursday, but no arrests have been made.

“A second warrant was executed at a Henderson Street address and samples of potential forensic value were seized.

“The investigation continues to receive information from the public and investigators are steadily working through inquiries that have been generated from that information,” he says.

Forensic scientists from crime scene specialist firm ESR assisted police at both addresses.

Jessica was last seen in a red Holden Rodeo ute in Renwick.

The ute was found three days later at the Lake Chalice car park in the Mount Richmond Forest Park but police bosses think it was left there deliberately to hinder the investigation.

Detective Senior Sergeant Sloan says enquiries are ongoing.
