"We have already conducted one previous review last October and the time is now right for us to carry out a second one.
"We are also holding an Invitation Day later this week when we will be discussing the progress of the investigation with experienced senior investigating officers from within North Yorkshire Police and from other forces, together with experts from the National Centre for Policing Excellence.
"We want to ensure that everything that can be done, has been, or is being done within the remit of this investigation."
Police are stressing that whilst the review is underway, the search for Jenny is still active.
A man remains on Police bail in connection with the investigation.
