Duncan-Bailey Search: Woman's Body Found
A body has been found by police officers investigating the death of a mother-of-two, Scotland Yard has said.
Officers believe it is that of Janelle Duncan-Bailey, 25, who has not been seen since she went missing in south London in the early hours of Wednesday.
The Metropolitan Police said a 30-year-old man was arrested on Friday night on suspicion of her murder and remains in custody at a police station in the capital.
A Met spokesman said: "Officers attended Mayfield Crescent, Thornton Heath this afternoon (Saturday) following intelligence received.
"The body of a woman was found in a vehicle parked there.
"While formal identification awaits, we are confident the deceased is Janelle Duncan-Bailey, 25, of Pawsons Road, Thornton Heath.
"Next of kin have been informed."
Ms Duncan-Bailey left her children - boys aged two and seven - with a friend in Bromley while she attended a family function, police said.
She left the friend's at about 4am on Wednesday to return to Thornton Heath, where at about 4.30am she visited her former partner's home.
Police were called after reports of a domestic incident and Ms Duncan-Bailey left the address with officers.
It is believed she asked to be taken to another friend's house in Limpsfield Avenue, Thornton Heath, and she was last seen between 5am and 5.30am walking towards flats in Limpsfield Avenue.
Ms Duncan-Bailey was reported missing later that day after she failed to collect her children.
what do you think?
Maybe the police should have made sure she arrived at the other friends place considering te time and what had just happened
Fair point shirley - dont understand why someone has voted you down. Not when your talking common sense
its not there job there not social workers
They could have made sure she got to where she was going extra 5 minutes could have saved her life and they are there to protect the public
Andy it may not be their job but any person with an ounce of decency and a shred of common sense would not let a single female walk home alone at 5am on any day let alone when she had an angry partner nearby. She had asked for their help and what did they do? leave her to fend for herslf shame on them
Typical police these days - more interested in their new corporate image, mission statements and Whitehall targets. Just like so many nurses think that they are above cleaning up urine and faeces, or giving gereatric patients enough water to survive. See Staffordshire NHS. Something seriously wrong with 21st Century Britain
