THE family of a schoolgirl killed in a hit-and-run incident four years ago, have renewed their appeal to find the driver.

Gemma Rolfe died aged 12, in May 2003, in Slade Green Road, Slade Green, while on her way to Guides.

She was in a car with her stepfather, Dean Robey, when they were hit by a stolen white van.

Gemma, who went to Erith School, died at the scene.

The driver of the van was said to be a youth aged between 18 and 20 at the time.

He fled the scene and his identity has never been proven.

Every year Gemma's mother Janet Ford, her brother Kye and Mr Robey, commemorate her death at the site where she died.

The family have appealed again for witnesses.

In a statement they said: "There are scum and cowards who think it is OK to steal a car and take a life.

"You can never take our pain away, but you could help give us justice."
