A body has been found in the search for a woman reported missing just over two weeks ago.

Police searching for 53-year-old Alison Fleming, who was reported missing from the Penzance area on July 19, say they have found the body of a woman.

A force spokesperson said: "The body was located at Widemouth Bay, Bude, at around 3pm on Sunday, August 2."

They said that while formal identification was yet to take place, the family of Ms Fleming had been informed of the discovery.

"The death is not being treated as suspicious and a file is being prepared for the coroner," added the spokesperson.

Last month police said they were "increasingly concerned" for Ms Fleming, who had last been seen in the Chysauster area of Penzance at around 1am on July 19.
