A coroner has recorded an open verdict in the case of a Penryn mother-of-two who went missing five years ago and whose body has never been found.

Wendy Pollard was 44 when she disappeared in April 2008, after leaving her car at Gunwalloe, near Helston.

Assistant coroner Andrew Cox said while both her family, represented at the inquest by her son Ashley Fuller, and the police believe Wendy took her own life, in the absence of a body he could only record an open verdict.
