Two held over missing girl
DETECTIVES have arrested a man and woman on suspicion of murdering a teenager who has not been seen for nearly a week. Dorset Police said a 19-year-old man and a 71-year-old woman were arrested in connection with the disappearance of Gaia Pope, 19, pictured.
The teenager, from Langton Matravers, was staying at an address in Swanage when she disappeared on the afternoon of November 7. Searches took place at two addresses in Swanage and the man and woman were arrested. Police said they were both known to Gaia. Detective Chief Inspector Neil Devoto, who is leading the investigation, said: “It has been almost a week since Gaia’s last confirmed sighting and she has not been seen or heard from since. “Her disappearance is completely out of character and, following our extensive inquiries, we sadly now believe that she may have come to harm.”
