Officers investigating the death of a woman in Kent are appealing for the public's help in locating some of her personal items.

The body of Mariola Cudworth, also known as Mijka, was discovered in a field in Eastry late on Monday 11 May.

Detectives from the Kent and Essex Serious Crime Directorate have charged Jonathon Cudworth, 34, of Northbourne in Deal, with murder and he is remanded in custody.

Officers are looking to locate some of the victim's possessions, including a mobile phone and two handbags.

The first is a small black leather handbag with a shoulder strap. The bag was around 6 inches in length and only big enough to hold a mobile phone, keys and purse, and had two zips - one down the side and one down the back. One of the zips may have been broken.

The second is a larger black leather holdall-style bag, with one zip.

In addition, officers need to locate Mijka's silver iPhone 6, which was in good condition and had no protective case.

It is believed the phone, which had a passcode, has a lock screen photo of Mijka and her children.

Senior investigating officer, Detective Inspector Richard Vickery, said: 'We are keen to locate these items as they may assist our investigation. We have received information that suggests Mijka's property may have been discarded in the sea by Deal Pier.

'Anybody who finds them or has any knowledge of their whereabouts is asked to call us on 01303 289600, quoting incident reference 30-0234.

'Alternatively, if you would prefer to remain anonymous, call Kent Crimestoppers on 0800 555111.'
