Bobbi-Anne McLeod was reported missing on Saturday after she failed to meet friends in the city.

The body of a woman was found near Bovisand, South Hams, based on information received by police.

Officers had been conducting searches and inquiries across Plymouth, supported by a police helicopter.

A Facebook page set up to help find Ms McLeod attracted more than 10,000 members.

The leader of Plymouth City Council tweeted: “I am sure that the shock of this tragedy will not just be felt in Leigham but across the whole of our city.”

Councillor Nick Kelly added: “I know everyone will stand with me when I say that all our thoughts are with her family and friends at this devastating time.”

The Labour MP for Plymouth Sutton and Devonport Luke Pollard tweeted: “It is devastating news for our city that a body has been discovered in the search for missing Bobbi-Anne. My thoughts and love are with the family.

“We await news from the police but this is another dark day for our city. Let’s pull together in the same way we did after Keyham.”

Police said investigations continue and anyone with information is asked to contact them.
