Human remains have been found by police in their search for a missing 20-year-old woman.
In an ongoing investigation lasting over a month since Agnes Akom was last seen, officers made the "deeply disturbing" discovery while scouring Neasden Recreation Park, north London, on Monday.
The body has not yet been formally identified, Metropolitan Police say but specially trained officers are supporting Agnes’ family who have been informed of the development.
Agnes, who is known by friends and family as "Dora", moved to the UK from her native Hungary three years ago, MyLondon reports.
She left her home address in the Cricklewood Broadway area of Camden on May 9 and was reported missing two days later. She was not seen or heard from since the day of her disappearance.
Detective chief inspector Neil John, senior investigating officer from the Met’s Specialist Crime North, said officers will remain in the area for some days as part of the investigation.
He added: "The discovery of human remains by my colleagues searching the area is both shocking and deeply disturbing for everyone concerned, in particular for Agnes’s family who continue to be supported by specialist officers. I request that their privacy is respected as this very difficult time.
