A murder investigation has been launched after a body was found in Devon by police who have been searching for a missing 18-year-old woman.

Bobbi-Anne McLeod had been due to catch a bus into Plymouth city centre to meet friends on Saturday evening but did not arrive.

The body was located near Bovisand in South Hams on the south coast of Devon, around six miles from Plymouth, after information was passed to the police.

Devon and Cornwall police said on Tuesday night that formal identification has yet to be carried out, but added that McLeod’s family had been informed of the development and were being supported by officers.

Two men, aged 24 and 26, from Plymouth have been arrested on suspicion of murder and are in police custody.

McLeod left her home in Leigham in Plymouth at around 6pm on Saturday.

Police have been conducting searches and inquiries across Plymouth, supported by a helicopter. A Facebook page set up to help find McLeod attracted more than 13,000 members. Friends and local residents joined searches of woods near her home on Monday and Tuesday.

The Labour MP for Plymouth Sutton and Devonport Luke Pollard tweeted: “It is devastating news for our city that a body has been discovered in the search for missing Bobbi-Anne. My thoughts and love are with the family.”

Referring to the mass shootings in the city in August, he added: “We await news from the police but this is another dark day for our city. Let’s pull together in the same way we did after Keyham.”

Police described McLeod as 4ft 11ins tall, of slight build with brown, straight shoulder length hair, green eyes and ear piercings. Before the body was found a close family friend, Amanda Isaacs, 34, said McLeod had been on her way to meet a friend when she disappeared.

She said: “Her headphones and baccy were found at the bus stop and there’s just no trace. It has been sealed off and forensics are there.”

Isaacs described McLeod as very family-oriented, adding: “She is 18, but she is very tiny and very slim that she probably looks about 15 in reality.”

Tributes to McLeod were posted on the Facebook page. One wrote: “Like most, I’ve followed this from the start of her going missing and I really hoped this wouldn’t be the outcome. Sleep tight you beautiful girl, I’m so sorry.”
