Family pay tribute to their "special baby girl"

The family of Jessica Blake from Beverley have paid tribute to her. Her body was found on Sunday. Her death is not being treated as suspicious.

Jess was no angel, but nor was she a bad kid. She was cheeky and mischievous, loving and kind. She was the kind of girl who got on with anyone, she never judged and just took people as she found them. She filled our lives with fun and laughter, loved us and hugged us, played with us and fought with us, often all at the same time. She was clever and confident, funny and witty, and I can still hear her laughing.

– Dave Blake, proud father of Jess

The Jess who left home on Saturday lunchtime was laughing and hugging me just before she left. We had a tickle fight on the stairs, a fight she always lost and which always left me with a bruise or two. She told me she loved me for the last time there, as I helped her up, both of us laughing.

This was the girl all those kind, caring and selfless people were looking for, our daughter Jess, my 'special girl', her big sister's 'little sissy', someone her little brother could look up to and her mother's 'baby girl'. Our Jess.

– Dave Blake, proud father of Jess
