Thames Valley Police is continuing its inquiry to locate a missing woman from Aylesbury.

Patricia Goodband, aged 76, who also uses the surname Roberts, was reported as missing by a relative on Wednesday, January 9th.

Det Supt Chris Ward said: “We are still in the very early stages of our investigation and we have a team of officers trying to piece together Patricia’s whereabouts after Monday December 17th, which is when we now believe Patricia was last seen.

“Following our initial enquiries we have arrested two men, aged 63 and 59, on suspicion of murder, conspiracy to pervert the course of justice and of concealing a body. They are currently in custody where they are being questioned about Patricia’s disappearance.

“However, I would like to stress that although two people have been arrested, we are continuing to treat this as a missing person inquiry.

“I am urging anyone who has seen or heard from Patricia since Monday 17 December, or who has any information about her, to come forward as soon as possible.

“We are keeping Patricia’s family fully updated as our investigation progresses.”

Anyone with information is asked to call the 24-hour Police Enquiry Centre on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
