The young woman's body found at the Queen's Sandringham estate in Norfolk has been identified as missing teenager Alisa Dmitrijeva.

17 year old Alisa from Wisbech was last seen on the 31st of August in Kings Lynn.

Detective Chief Inspector Jes Fry, head of the Joint Norfolk and Suffolk Major Investigation Team, and who is leading the investigation into the case said: "Family Liaison Officers have been sent to meet with close family this morning (Sunday 8 January) to provide the update.

I shall now be liaising with officers from Cambridgeshire who have been working on trying to locate Alisa in recent months as a missing person. 

The information they provide will give me and the team an extra focus to the enquiry. 

I should add we are still trying to establish any activity which took place on or around the site during the time frame of the end of August to the end of September 2011. 

We would like to identify people who may have worked in that area or were involved in organising or running any specific events that may have taken place."

Alisa's family said in a brief statement: 'We are devastated by the news of Alisa's death. We wish to grieve in private."

Alisa's death is being treated as murder.

Anyone with any information relating to the incident should contact the Joint Norfolk and Suffolk Major Investigation Team at Norfolk Constabulary on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
