Two men have been arrested after the body of a woman was found in the hunt for missing Plymouth teenager Bobbi-Anne McLeod.

Bobbi-Anne had not been seen since Saturday evening, prompting a huge search.

Devon and Cornwall Police announced on Tuesday evening the body of a woman had been located during searches for the missing 18-year-old.

A police cordon remains in Bovisand, in South Devon, where the body was found.

Police say the two men arrested are aged 24 and 26 and are from Plymouth.

Ms McLeod left her home in Leigham at around 6pm on Saturday evening and had been due to catch a bus into the city centre to meet friends.

She never arrived and Devon and Cornwall police have been conducting searches and inquiries across Plymouth, the force said, supported by a police helicopter.

A Facebook page set up to help find her has now attracted more than 10,000 members.

Investigators said the body had been located near Bovisand in South Hams on the south coast of Devon after information was passed to the police.

Devon and Cornwall Police said formal identification has yet to be carried out, but that Ms McLeod’s family had been informed of the development and are being supported by officers.
