A woman found dead in a field in Berkshire was asphyxiated, a post-mortem examination has revealed.

The body of Krishnamaya Mabo was found after a police search in Arborfield on Monday.

Thames Valley Police have been granted more time to question a 30-year-old man who was arrested on suspicion of murder.

Ms Mabo, a 39-year-old Nepalese, was reported missing in the early hours of Monday.

Her body was found off Robin Hood Copse, between Castle Hill and Eversley Road, at about 13:00 BST on Monday.

An extensive search of the area involved police dog units and the police helicopter.

Det Ch Insp Gill Wootton said: "We are providing support to Krishnamaya's family at this extremely distressing time and keeping them fully informed on the progress of our investigation.

"We are now working to establish Krishnamaya's movements on Sunday evening."

Police want anyone who was walking in fields or woodland between Castle Hill and Eversley Road on Sunday afternoon or evening to contact them.
