Tributes to teenager after body found

'Treasured' memories of Bobbi-Anne McLeod's brother

The brother of a young woman who went missing from Plymouth at the weekend has paid tribute to her in a Facebook message.

Police searching for Bobbi-Anne McLeod found a woman's body at Bovisand on Tuesday morning. Two men, aged 24 and 26, are being question on suspicion of murder.

Lee McLeod wrote: "To have you as my little sister, the adventure and journey we had been on will always be treasured.

"Until we meet again sis, I love you.

"You didn't deserve this, such a beautiful and talented girl."

Ms McLeod left her home in Leigham at about 6 p.m. on Saturday to catch a bus to Plymouth town centre to meet friends but never arrived. It prompted a major search.

Although formal identification of the body has yet to take place, Ms McLeod's family have been informed of the development and are being supported by police.

A GoFundMe page set up by Amanda Isaacs, a neighbour, to pay for her funeral, has raised more than £8,000. Ms Isaacs said: "She was a beautiful young girl only aged 18 with her whole life ahead of her."

Ms Isaacs said Ms McLeod's family are "going through hell", adding that she hoped the fundraiser would lessen some of the stress on them.

On Tuesday Johnny Mercer, Conservative MP for Plymouth Moor View, which includes Leigham, said it was a "shocking incident" which was "felt palpably across the community".

He said: "It's a tragedy and it's hard to believe it's happened.

"These things are very rare in Plymouth but it does not feel like that when it is your friends or family.

"It is so sad and we will do everything we can to wrap our arms around the family."
