A body believed to be that of arts writer Florence Waters has been found in Oxfordshire, police have said.
The columnist, who wrote for the The Daily Telegraph, had been missing since Monday and a search had been launched across the county.
Specialist officers were supporting her family after the discovery was made on land in Thame on Thursday.
“Officers have located a body in Thame this evening, which is believed to be that of missing Florence Waters,” Thames Valley Police said.
“The body was found on land near Oxford Road, Thame. Florence, aged 33, had been missing since Monday. Florence’s next of kin have been informed and are being supported by specially-trained officers at this time.”
Police said Ms Waters’ death is not believed to be suspicious and a file will be prepared for her coroner.
A profile on The Telegraph’s website says the journalist contributed articles on the visual arts, film and books.
Ms Waters’ own artwork is advertised for sale on the Saatchi art gallery website.
