This morning Avon & Somerset Police provided us with an update to the search for Vanessa Hodge, a 49 year old woman from Dulverton. You may recall they launched a missing person investigation at the beginning of June for Vanessa.
We are sorry to report that they have just released a statement to the effect that “At about 3pm on Tuesday 2 July, a kayaker found human remains on the shoreline in Samson’s Bay near Ilfracombe”
Whilst the remains have yet to be formally identified, we understand that the Police have updated the family of Vanessa. A post mortem will be carried out next week. Her family are being supported by specially-trained officers.
We can only add our condolences and respect their privacy at this difficult time.
