A human leg found in a river has been confirmed to be the limb of a woman who disappeared a year ago.
Police were called to a report that suspected human remains had been seen in the River Irwell near Whit Lane, Pendleton, Salford, shortly before 9am on Wednesday November 28.
DNA testing confirmed the leg belonged to Marie Scott, who was reported missing from her home in Hale on December 18 last year, Greater Manchester Police said.
The force said there are not believed to be any suspicious circumstances and no one else is thought to be involved in her disappearance.
Her family has been informed and inquiries into the circumstances of her disappearance are continuing.
