Watch a video report from ITV Anglia's Raveena Ghattaura:
Police investigating the murder of missing student Joy Morgan say a body has been found in woodland just outside Stevenage.
It was discovered in Norton Green where police had previously searched for the murdered 20-year-old.
A statement from Hertfordshire Police said: "Police were called by a member of the public at 7.43am on Saturday October 5 to reports of a suspected human body found in woodland off Chadwell Road, Stevenage."
The force say one of their lines of enquiry is that the body could be Joy, and that specially-trained officers are supporting her family.
A post-mortem on the body will take place on Tuesday 8 October.
Joy, who was studying midwifery at the University of Hertfordshire, was last seen alive in Ilford in East London on Boxing Day last year.
Shohfah-El Israel, from North London, was found guilty of her murder and sentenced to a minimum of 17 years in prison.
The 40-year-old, who's real name is Ajibola Shogbamimu, has never revealed where he left Joy's body.
Speaking after his sentencing, Joy's mother Carol said: "Give me my baby back, he knows where she is.
"The way I hear it, he was besotted with her ... If he loved her, give her back up to us so I can bury my daughter.
"If I get to see her before I die I'll be very grateful."
