Police have been given more time to question a 24-year-old man on suspicion of the murder of Bobbi-Anne McLeod as a second suspect has been released.
Ms McLeod, 18, went missing after leaving her home in Leigham, Plymouth, at about 6pm on Saturday to catch a bus into town.
Her friends, who she had been due to meet up with, raised the alarm after she failed to arrive. A woman’s body was found on Tuesday during a police search near Bovisand, South Hams – about 25 minutes’ drive away.
One line of inquiry police are thought to be looking into is whether Ms McLeod was taken by a stranger as she waited at a bus stop on Sheepstor Road near her home.
Police have confirmed a 26-year-old man arrested on suspicion of murder has been released from police custody with no further action.
A 24-year-old man remains in police custody on suspicion of murder under a warrant of further detention.
