Thames Valley Police officers searching for a missing woman in Aylesbury have found a body.
They made the discovery on land in Woodham, near Aylesbury, yesterday afternoon.
An inquiry started after 76-year-old Patricia Goodband was reported missing on Wednesday 9th January.
Det Supt Chris Ward, who is leading the investigation, said yesterday:
"The body was found on land at Akeman House in Woodham this afternoon.
"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."
A 63-year-old man has been charged with murder and a 59-year-old man has been charged with perverting the course of justice, both in connection with the inquiry.
