Police searching for a missing woman have confirmed they have found a body.

Hollie Kerrell, 28, was last seen at her home in Knighton, Powys, on Sunday.

Dyfed-Powys Police officers continue to question a 35-year-old man arrested on suspicion of murder and said they were not looking for anyone else in connection with Ms Kerrell's death.

Detectives said a formal identification of the body had not yet been carried out, but the coroner had been informed.

"We are saddened to confirm a body has been found during the search of missing Hollie Kerrell," said Supt Jon Cummins.

"Our thoughts are with her family, who are being supported by specially trained officers at this extremely sad time."
