A body located in the River Wye in Netherton, and recovered by officers searching for a missing woman from Hereford, has been formally identified.

Sadly, the body found yesterday morning (Thursday 10 March) has been confirmed to be Janet Edwards.


Janet was reported missing late last year and her next of kin have been informed.

Detective Chief Inspector Emma Whitworth said: "We know there has been a huge amount of hope in finding Janet safe and well, and we are deeply saddened by this outcome.

"I would like to express my thanks to the community for all of their support with our search for Janet over the past three months.

"Our thoughts go out to Janet's family and friends as this very difficult time."

Janet’s family have asked that their privacy is respected at this time.
