A WOMAN today appeared in court charged with murdering her missing stepdad who vanished more than a year ago.

Frank McKeever, 63, was last seen walking along Highbury Park in North London on August 28 last year.

His stepdaughter Surie Suksiri, 30, has now been charged with murdering Frank despite his body never being found.

She appeared at the Old Bailey today alongside her partner Juned Sheikh, 47, who faces the same charge.

The court was told Frank was last seen at around 10pm leaving the couple's home in Highbury Grange.

He then returned a short time later and has never been seen since, it was said.
