– Detective Inspector Jill Kells, Avon & Somerset Police
This is a desperately sad conclusion to an extensive search for Mary. I would like to extend my sympathies to Mary's family at what must be an extremely difficult time for them."Over the past few days we have received help from the public in raising awareness of Mary's disappearance. I am grateful for the help everyone has given. As Mary's family come to terms with this news I would ask that their privacy is respected.
At lunchtime yesterday officers searching for Mary Street found the body of a woman in Winterbourne. Following a public appeal for information someone rang up to report seeing Mary in a rural area of Winterbourne last Saturday.
Police officers were searching the area when they discovered the body off Swan Lane. Formal identification has not yet taken place but Mary's family have been informed of the discovery.
Police are asking people in Filton and wider Bristol to search their sheds and garages for a woman who has been missing for four days. Mary Street, who is 68, was last seen in Filton early on Saturday September 22nd. Officers think she may have found shelter somewhere because of the weather.
