Missing Vet Catherine Gowing: More Remains Found
Search teams hunting for missing vet Catherine Gowing have sealed off a second area after finding more human remains.
The grim discovery comes two days after officers discovered human remains in a shallow pool within a field in Sealand, Deeside, North Wales.
Ms Gowing, 36, who is originally from Clonlee, Co Offaly, in the Irish Republic, was last seen on Friday, October 12.
She was pictured on CCTV at a supermarket near her home in New Brighton, Flintshire, North Wales. She was reported missing on October 15.
A 46-year old man, from Gwynedd, North Wales, has since been charged with her murder.
A North Wales Police spokesman said an off-duty Cheshire Police officer made the latest discovery in Ferry Lane, Higher Ferry at 2.15pm.
He added: "The human remains have been recovered and the immediate scene secured pending a forensic examination and further detailed search.
"The human remains will be subject of a post-mortem and forensic examination to determine formal identification."
Tests are continuing on the remains which were found in Sealand on Wednesday, he added.
Ms Gowing was reported missing when she failed to arrive for work at the Evans Veterinary Practice in Mold, Flintshire, on October 15.
Later that week, police recovered her car which had been torched and abandoned in a disused quarry.
Police said they have devoted extensive resources to the search operation.
Clive Sharp, 46, of no fixed address, has been charged with murder and was remanded in custody until January 7 when he is due to enter his plea.
