Jakarta, Radar Pagi – Police say a body found in the search for 22-year-old Brooke Morris in Merthyr Tydfil has been identified as the missing young woman.
The keen rugby player vanished after a night out in Merthyr on Saturday.
South Wales Police searching the River Taff discovered the body of a woman today, and the force says it has now confirmed it is Brooke’s.
Although formal identification has yet to take place, her family has been made aware, reports Wales Online.
Police say it is not believed that anyone else is involved in her disappearance.
Superintendent Ceri Hughes said earlier: “We have no specific information at this time to suggest anyone else was involved in Brooke’s disappearance, however, because we don’t know what’s happened to her it’s important we keep an open mind.”
Her family continue to be supported by officers following the tragic discovery.
Police believe Ms Morris did not enter her home in Bontnewydd Terrace, Trelewis, on Saturday after she was dropped off by friends in the early hours of the morning.
Officers thanked the local community for their help in the search.
Anybody affected by what has been a traumatic event for the local community is reminded of the help available to them from Samaritans which can be contacted for free on 116 123. (mirror)
