Police looking for a 76 year old Buckinghamshire woman missing since before Christmas have found a body.

It was discovered on land at Woodham near Aylesbury.

A 63 year old man has been arrested on suspicion of murdering Patricia Goodband. Detectives had been looking into reports she was last seen being dropped off at Milton Keynes Central rail station.

Det Supt Chris Ward, who is leading the investigation, said: “The body was found on land at Akeman House in Woodham.

“Scenes of crime officers and a forensic archaeologist are continuing to work at the location. The recovery of the body will understandably take some time and we will not be able to carry out a formal identification until this process has been completed.

“Patricia’s family have been informed of this latest development in our inquiry.”
