At about 3pm on Tuesday 2 July, a kayaker found human remains on the shoreline in Samson’s Bay near Ilfracombe.

Although the remains have not yet been formally identified, we have updated the family of missing 49-year-old Dulverton woman Vanessa Hodge.

A forensic post-mortem examination will be held next week.

Vanessa’s family are being supported by specially-trained officers and have asked for privacy at this difficult time.
