Sunday Mirror - - FRONT PAGE - BY JOHN KELLY

A LEG found in a river be­longed to a mum of two who van­ished a year ago, po­lice said yes­ter­day.

Marie Scott, 58, went miss­ing af­ter leav­ing home last De­cem­ber 18.

Po­lice divers re­cov­ered the limb from the River Ir­well in Pendle­ton, Gtr Manch­ester, last month.

DNA test­ing con­firmed it be­longed to Mrs Scott.

Po­lice say no one else is thought to be in­volved in her dis­ap­pear­ance.

De­tec­tive In­spec­tor Si­mon Akker said: “This is an ab­so­lutely heart­break­ing devel­op­ment in the in­ves­ti­ga­tion to find Marie and her fam­ily are un­der­stand­ably dis­traught.

“Our ef­forts now will fo­cus on do­ing ev­ery­thing we can to pro­vide the fam­ily with the sup­port and an­swers they de­serve.”
