Body Found Full Details
The body was discovered without ahead, according to a police source. Det Supt Ben Deer said today at a press conference in Totnes that officers are currently searching the location, which is in steeply sloping forest beside Bennett Road in Salcombe: “Police believe the body may have been there for some days.”
According to Det Supt Deer, police are looking for information concerning her movements between June 10 and the time her body was discovered on June 27, as well as any information about the circumstances surrounding her death: “We are looking to understand her movements between June 10 and June 27 when she was found,” he told reporters.”
“We would appeal for witnesses and we would look for anyone to come forward with information quoting crime reference number 700 on June 27th by ringing 101 or contacting us on Crimestoppers.”
How She Went Missing?
Brent Metropolitan Police Service posted on social media on June 15: “Police need your help to locate MEE (DEBORAH) CHONG who has been reported #missing from her home address in #Wembley. If seen please call 101 ref 21MIS016922.”
Mee Kuen Chong’s disappearance sparked a social media outcry from activists concerned about her safety.
On June 24, two weeks following the initial police appeal, Harrow police issued a new appeal, stating: “Police need your help to find 67 year old Mee Chong who is #missing from her home in Wembley.”
The investigation will continue in Salcombe for a few days, according to the official police statement, and they are searching for information from the vacation industry: “This would include any hotels or bed and breakfast accommodation where she may have stayed and also from anyone who knows why she was in Salcombe.
“A number of enquiries will be carried out in Salcombe over the coming days, and it is likely that the local community will continue to see a high level of police activity.”
“Police would like to reassure the public that while this discovery may cause some concerns in the community, the heightened police presence is to investigate all of the circumstances.”
