THERE is growing speculation that the body of a young woman found on the Queen’s Sandringham estate could be that of missing Wisbech teenager Alisa Dmitrijeva.
Although police refuse to comment in any way at this stage, DNA tests are currently being carried out and the results are expected in the next 24 hours.
The 17-year-old Latvian teenager was last seen on August 31 in King’s Lynn and her family have not heard from her since, despite a number of unconfirmed sightings.
Police renewed their campaign to find Alisa just last month, offering a £5,000 reward for information leading to her whereabouts.
Human remains were discovered in an area of woodland in Anmer, near King’s Lynn, by a member of the public shortly after 4pm on Sunday, January 1.
Detectives from the Joint Norfolk and Suffolk Major Investigation Team confirmed that the body is that of a young adult female which has been at that site for a period estimated to be between a month and up to four months.
Following a post mortem examination, the Forensic Pathologist believes it is highly unlikely the death was through natural causes. There is no evidence of accidental injury, damage due to firearms or bladed weapon.
Enquiries continue and further searches of the area around the site, off Kings Avenue in the village, are due to resume today (Wednesday).
